Geomatics is the subfield of geography that deals with how spatial data are collected, managed, and analysed to produce spatial information. It includes the application of leading computer-based techniques in the environmental fields, such as global positioning systems, remote sensing, geographic information systems, and cartographic visualisation. This course aims to develop a better understanding of how we use global positioning systems and remote sensing to collect spatial data and geographic information systems to manage, analyse, and display spatial data and information. Students can expect to gain valuable hands-on experience in working with a leading geographic information system package. This course may be credited towards Anthropology. This course is also offered as GEOG 2017.
