Datos Geoespaciales: Herramientas y Tendencias Emergentes

Lifelong learning course. Semi-distance.


UPC School

This lifelong learning course can be attended as part of the master's degree Geographical Information Systems or as part of the postgraduate course GIS Technologies.

In this first contact with the world of GIS, the starting point for working with Geographic Information System is to know what it is and where it comes from graphic information. For this purpose there is a cartographic base for students dealing with topics such as the different file formats, CAD type mapping, etc. From there, the next step is to analyze and exploit the information graphically. Do not use a single tool but, despite working primarily with ArcGIS, the goal is to convey clearly the concepts of GIS and allow the student to use the various tools on the market either. The last step is to keep all this information and in this sense, the goal is to teach the initialization and load data graphs in the system by installing and configuring a database.
