This postgraduate course can be attended as part of the master's degree Geographical Information Systems.
The GIS (Geographical Information Systems) is an organized integration of hardware, software and geographic data designed to capture, store, analyze and display geographically referenced information. In the society we live in, this information is important because it is a strategic asset that provides knowledge and added value to organizations today. These technologies include exceptional abilities to work the land, offer new ways of understanding and managing our environment.
The course combines the approach to the bases of study, case studies and workshops on implementation of GIS methods and computer techniques, aimed at improving the management and organization of territorial information, the environment and natural areas.
Its aim is the continuous training and reorientation of professionals related to the environment, and land management and other disciplines related to geography, urban planning, among others, require that incorporate new technologies (Geographic Information TIG).
Students work from concepts and tools common to new vectors of territorial and environmental analysis methodologies using GIS spatial analysis applied themselves to the development of intelligent maps, managing natural resources and the evaluation of environmental impact. Using various platforms such Arcgis and Geoomedia.
As a distinguishing feature from other courses the high performance of practical learning that provides a good level of work autonomy and good technical training to meet skills level in GIS geospatial data integration in the development proposals, studies and documents based territorial planning and management of urban natural areas and the environment.
The teaching staff has extensive experience in implementing GIS projects in industry and government projects as proved developed at the Laboratory of Virtual Modelling of the city's GIS area.
The student acquires computer skills and skills applying basic concepts, guidelines and components to create effective GIS project in this line.
