Research Methods in GI Science

This module imparts the knowledge and skills necessary to engage in the scientific discourse in Geoinformatics and Spatial Data Science.

Location in GI Applications

This module focuses on the relationship between users of geoinformatic applications and their location and spatial context.

Spatial Data Science

The processing and analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal data plays an essential role in answering most geoscientific questions. This module enables students to gain expertise in topics central to this discipline.

Interdisciplinary Aspects

The aim of this module is to impart the numerous opportunities and challenges associated with the interdisciplinary nature of Geoinformatics and the manyfold connections to other scientific fields.

Fundamentals in Geoinformatics

The technical and organizational challenges associated with the distributed storage, processing and integration of (heterogeneous) geospatial data are at the heart of this module. This module is mandatory for students holding a BSc from an external institution.

Electives
