Opis predmeta

Course description
This topic will introduce students to the use of Geographic Information Systems and provide a solid grounding in the theoretical and conceptual aspects of GIS. It aims to give participants experience of working with GIS package and teach students skills which will be applicable in a wide range of application areas in agriculture and environment. Furthermore, students will gain knowledge about the basics of remote sensing, principally about usage of different images for natural resources assessment. During lectures and practical work students will got knowledge about GIS and similar technologies (global positioning system, digital elevation models). Within the GIS, explanations about: different kind of GIS models, different kind and forms of data (geographic data, attribute data and their maintenance), techniques for merging geographic and attribute data, queries and analysis of spatial data will be given. Students will also got knowledge about scanning, digitizing and vectorisation of maps as well as cartographic datums and projections and georeferencing of scanned maps. They will also learn about practical use of GIS as well as methods of maps and reports creation and printing.

Opće kompetencije

After completion of the module and passing the exam, students will have knowledge about: types and characteristics of computer hardware and software required for GIS; ways of establishing a GIS; work with graphical and attribute databases; the use of global positioning system (GPS) to maintain the graphic database; fitting data and remote sensing products in GIS; Application of digital elevation model (DEM), and analysis of data and the creation of new information using GIS.

Oblici nastave

  • Lectures
  • Practicum
    Practical work will be performed on open source GIS software – Quantum GIS. The main procedures for work with spatial data, establishment, management, analysis of vector and raster format data , interpretation of satellite images and digital orthophoto, preparation of maps and reports will be explained and trained.
  • Seminars
    Seminars for particular topics (dependent on student previous education and interest) of connection remote sensing and GIS for spatial analysis will be prepared and presented by students in form of lectures.
