Topic description

This topic offers students high-level instruction in Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The topic will extend the students' knowledge of spatial information theory and expose them to new tools and methodologies. The topic will develop an understanding of data editing, information management and communication of spatial information including web delivery systems.

Educational aims

This topic aims to provide students with an in-depth understanding of advanced GIS methodologies for the editing and management and delivery of spatial information.

Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the creation, editing and building of topologically correct spatial information in a spatial information management system
  2. Design and populate a spatial information management system for the distribution of spatial information
  3. Build web mapping services for on-line delivery and communication of spatial information
  4. Demonstrate an ability to visualize spatial information in both 2D and 3D environments
  5. Identify errors and issues associated with spatial data management
