AG2414 Spatial Analysis 7.5 credits

Rumslig analys

This course presents students with the fundamental concepts and advanced techniques of spatial analysis. GIS and statistical techniques are discussed for managing, analyzing and modeling spatial data. Students will gain practical experience in publicly presenting spatial analysis topics.

This course also intends to prepare students for applying spatial analysis techniques to handle geospatial data in various fields and provide students opportunities to gain practical experience of undertaking GIS projects.

The course is composed of lectures, projects and seminars. Each new topic is introduced at a lecture. Associated with each topic are an exercise and a seminar.
