2022 unit offering information will be available in November 2021
Will develop GIS skills to a professional level. Students will work with a variety of software to perform spatial analysis, image interpretation, database management and integrate data from various sources/software platforms. The class will work together on a single environmental issue and solve a defined spatial problem. At the same time, students will be managing and solving a complex spatial problem related to their own area of interest.
Managing a GIS project to solve a spatial problem
Acquiring suitable spatial and non spatial data for a project
Fundamentals of remote sensing
Using QGIS and GRASS to solve a spatial problem
Using Google Earth Pro to solve a spatial problem
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

|2||analyse spatial data to solve a spatial problem|
|3||interpret a remotely sensed images|
|4||use a variety of software to solve a spatial problem in their discipline|
|5||communicate results of spatial analysis to the wider community.|
