This course is designed specifically for ambitious students and professionals who are interested in interdisciplinary knowledge to solve environmental and spatial management issues using geo-information science and Earth observation techniques. Participants will gain wide knowledge and technical skills to analyse, interpret, process and implement spatial and non-special databases, modern remote sensing techniques, and geo-informatics tools. Successful completion of the course will open a wide opportunity to dedicate themselves into government and private sectors globally.
There will be special attention paid to the implementation of modern remote sensing and geoinformation techniques, as well as spatial planning in order to promote sustainable development of urban and rural areas. The course will develop competences in organizing and managing optical, airborne and UAV campaigns and processing of imaging spectroscopy data in order to map and monitor natural ecosystems, artificial infrastructures as well as natural hazards. The knowledge about databases contains both spatial and non-spatial data, managing the data, handling big databases and query optimization techniques will be provided.
After successful completion of the course, participants can find better job prospects in rapidly growing Geoinformatics industry/Disaster Management agencies/ Government and private sectors in the European and global market.
Environmental processes: to understand basic environmental processes and use GIS tools for characterizing them
Technical and social aspects: to possess the knowledge about technical infrastructure of rural and urban areas and settlements modeling of environmental processes and economic aspects of spatial management
Geo-information and Earth observation systems: to apply modern geoinformation and remote sensing techniques for mapping and monitoring the natural environment, risk management, and protection of natural resources
