This lifelong learning course can be attended as part of the master's degree Geographical Information Systems or as part of the postgraduate course Environmental applications for GIS or as part of the postgraduate course Territorial applications for GIS.
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 implementation of geoinformation ie GIS requires the modernization of systems and teams from all types of organizations dedicated to spatial planning, urban planning and local management. The aim of the course is the training and reorientation of professionals related to the management and territory, local or municipal il¿escala between d¿altres requiring d¿incorporar new Geographic Information Technologies (GIT).
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, geoinformation municipal treatment and management.
Students work to build descriptors, indicators and analysis parameters territorial and municipal levels, in the preparation of maps 3D data visualization.
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 world of company creation consulting projects or implementation of GIS, studies and documents based territorial management, urban planning or implementation of local GIS.
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.
