EM433 - Spatial Analysis and Modelling
|Coordinator(s)||Lalit Kumar (email@example.com)|
Advanced aspects of using GIS for spatial analysis and environmental modelling are the key themes of this subject. The subject will include topics such as: raster data analysis, data merging, overlay principles, intersect and union operations, buffer applications, proximity analysis, terrain analysis including shaded relief views, site suitability analysis and network analysis. These principles will then be used for spatial modelling, including modelling species biodiversity and distribution patterns. The unit will also include a section on mobile GIS and how this technology can be used in natural resources management. Students in EM533 are expected to demonstrate a greater level of understanding.
