Course specific prerequisites

Viktig information!

Denna kurs kommer att göras om under 2016 till dels en kortare grundkurs, dels en avancerad fortsättningskurs. Mer information kommer senare.

Minimum 40 credits from courses with architectural design focus or corresponding qualifications.
Swedish.
Good familiarity with using computers is necessary.

Aim

The aim of this course is to communicate knowledge about how to utilise GIS (Geographical Information Systems) to create, edit, model, analyse and present mapping information in both 2 and 3D. The course takes in several fields of application, such as the built environment - urban planning, traffic planning, urban design etc. After completing the course the participants will be able to make use of several of the GIS-tools dealt with.

Content

Part 1 of the course
During the first part of the course lectures will be alternated with practical exercises and theoretical sessions in order to train the basic essentials of GIS, such as:
- Gathering in geographical data
- Editing mapping information
- Modelling and analysis of data in 2D/3D
- Presentation/Visualisation of mapping information
We shall mainly be working with ArcGIS together with several amendments for 2D/3D analysis and visualisation, but the course will also include parts where MapInfo is used as the GIS-tool.

Part 2 of the course
During the second half of the course a GIS-project is carried out, either individually or in a group, where the participants train the use of GIS for problem solving and presentation/visualisation. This part of the course will be carried out with the assistance of individual teaching supervision, where the communication between the teacher and participant will partially take place via the Internet.

Lectures
GIS - an introduction, computer programs and areas of use.
GIS 3D - an introduction, visualisation techniques and areas of use.
GPS - to gather in information of ones own.

Literature

Compendiums and manuscripts handed out during the course.
Additional recommended literature is mentioned during the introductory part of the course.

Examination

In order to obtain a pass in this course the following requirements must be fulfilled: attendance (at least 75%) during part 1 and satisfactory presentation of the completed projects during parts 1 and 2.
