Module overview

This module will provide students with the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills required for developing their own GIS-based projects, either as standalone analysis or as part of a larger piece of work for both environmental and social applications. Students will be encouraged to plan and conduct spatial analysis using GIS (both ArcGIS and QGIS) and understand the challenges and strengths of this method, as well as the range of data sources available. Working in groups, potential challenges in project planning and management will be identified, and students will present the problems and proposed solutions in small groups. Students will then use their own idea or select a topic from a predefined list to plan and complete a project which uses GIS as the primary means of analysis, practising the application of their spatial analysis skills in preparation for employment or further

education in GIS. A complementary module, Advanced GIS focuses on advanced geospaitial analysis.
