Aims and learning outcomes

The course focuses on developing student knowledge of


geographic data analysis concepts, methods and tools.
The subjects proposed concern all people that, for
different reasons and from different points of view, must
use georeferenceable data and information.
Aim of the course is to provide an exhaustive frame
about geographic information: from acquisition, to
validation, processing and analysis, web publishing.
Rudiments on geoservices and Spatial Data
Infrastructures are also provided.
Students are asked to learn some proprietary and open
source - free software packages (as ArcGIS, Openjump,
GRASS, MapServer, pmapper).

Lecture = 54 hours
Practice = 30 hours
Laboratory = 39 hours

Laboratory consists in tutor supervised GIS


projects developed by students. Students
work in small groups.

Exam: Verbal examination on the topics of


the course AND the presentation of the
laboratory project.
