Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the subject is to give information students about methods and processes in Data processing in GIS, mainly data analysis. Beside to obtained overview the student will be able to design and realise appropriate procedures and critically evaluate different variants of the solution.

Teaching methods

Project work


The lectures include a review of various possibilities of spatial data processing in geographical information systems. Following main topics are explained: concepts of modifications and transformations of spatial data, basics of map algebra, overlay analysis, neighbourhood analysis including geostatistics and contiguity analysis. A typology of spatial analysis are completed by explanation of mathematical principles and concepts of appropriate algorithms, pros and cons or constraints of each method, case studies and examples of implementation in usual software.
