| Learning Outcomes (LO)
Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
demonstrate an advanced and integrated knowledge of the principles of spatial analysis and GIS modelling; communicate this knowledge to others using verbal and written formats;
carry out advanced GIS operations and thereby demonstrate the ability to apply established theories to a body of knowledge or practice;
demonstrate an advanced and integrated knowledge of the subject by applying appropriate GIS methods for problem solving in spatial analysis and modelling; this will also demonstrate an ability to work and think autonomously and generate solutions to complex problems;
demonstrate an awareness of organisational issues of GIS development and implementation; the student will also demonstrate an ability to analyse critically and evaluate appropriate information; and
demonstrate an ability to advance the field of GIS by undertaking research as part of a project to solve environmental problems.
