Language of instruction:


Assumed knowledge on:

GIMA modules 1-5.

Continuation courses:

MSc thesis.


The knowledge and experience acquired in the previous modules is integrated by letting the participants carry out a GIS project themselves. The module is particularly closely related to module 2 (basic applications) and module 5 (advanced methods and techniques).
By a number of case study subjects the students will work on the integration of the GI- knowledge, -skills and -attitudes they have trained in the previous modules. The cases will be on advanced level and narrowly related to 'state of the art' GI-science subjects.

Learning outcomes:

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- integrate knowledge and skills of the previous modules (1, 2, 4, 5);
- apply project management and progress monitoring skills to prepare, plan, execute, manage and monitor a GIS project;
- summarize and report relevant and state-of-the-art research relevant to the project by executing a scientific literature study.
- independently use appropriate GI techniques and methods in the context of specific applications;
- present the methodology and results in an appropriate manner for a specific context;
- develop a critical attitude towards data and data processing methods;
- evaluate organisational restraints and consequences.
