The purpose with this course is to give the students deeper knowledge and theoretical perspectives on Geoinformatics and perspectives on computer methods to handle spatial data. The subject Geoinformatics is interdisciplinary and share several academic and application fields. The course will give an overview of the research in the area and prepare for research.
We recommend basic knowledge in GIS and preferable in programming and databases.
Tuition, seminars and exercises are provided concentrated between 10-15 during one day every second week to once a month between October January (totally ca 10 events). Parts of the course communication as well as access o tutorials can be provided on distance.
- Theoretical perspectives on capture, handling, preparation and analysis of
geographic and other spatial data.
- Methods to analyse networks and cartographic algebra to handle and analyse
spatial questions within technology, natural science, medicine, social science
- Spatal statistical methods to identify clusters and diffusion of physical
as well as biological and non material properties (languages, dialects, names,
- Methods to visualise dynamic events in two or more dimensions and multi
modal communication of processes in time and space.
