Summary

The course introduces the basic way of professional geoscience data storage generally in a computer environment - with databases. In practice, it focuses only on the relational database as the currently most widely used format. It explains the data types in terms of computer forms, their ranges, and operations with them. It deals with the display options and ways to convert real-world geological data on these basic types of computer. An essential part of the course, there are query languages, particularly SQL. The practical part of the course takes place in a computer lab environment and database system to model the data representation of geological objects and their properties both descriptive and spatial.
