Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To explain with the entire chain of operations on data in geographic information systems, starting with the methodology and data collection, through their own preparation and processing in GIS environment, up to the final outputs.

Teaching methods



The geological and environmental data processing is focused, regarding to their quality and quantity differs in respects to common data. The data are analysed and categorised in aspect of their further presentation by geographical information systems. The mathematical and statistical tools for data preprocessing are emphasised. The space and other long-distnace exploration data are described as well, together with logical operations and comparative databases. Frequently used data formats are generated as geostatistical software output and used as GIS input.
