Why this programme?

The course includes references to Big Data in the Smart Cities environment and its potential for monitoring citizens' activities. The data generated by citizens is explained by means of successful experiences of pioneering local institutions in the implementation of GIS. Methods of urban analysis are explored by combining the standard data with new emerging formats oriented towards multiple objectives for the analysis of differential urban characteristics, densities, differential buildable areas, among other approaches. The course also defines a strategy for a standard geolocation procedure. Various approaches to search criteria and types of parameterisation of urban data are established to that end.

Aims
  • To be able to use specific GIS programs suitable for producing proposals for study or management by the local institution.
  • To provide effective knowledge of advanced 3D visualisation mapping formats.
  • To develop examples of Geolocation, Geomarketing and mobility strategies.
  • To enable students to learn, modify and generate new ideas within a creative and dynamic model.
Who is it for?
  • Computer technicians or higher.
  • Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Construction Engineers.
  • Engineers, Civil Enginers Geomatics and Topography.
  • Industrial engineers of different specialisations.
