Objectives of the Course
To give students a understanding of GIS in the commercial world, an appreciation of data and error handling, and the sensitivity of decision-based techniques of spatial analysis within GIS applications. The course divides into two main sections: (i) design, planning, legalities and error within GIS data management, and (ii) analytical decision making techniques, including decision support models and different spatial analysis methods.
