Geo-information and spatial planning is the application of information science to geography, geology and other geo-sciences. It deals with spatial information of any kind in terms of nature, classification, structure, etc.
It focuses on improving existing and developing new technologies that are used to collect, analyse, distribute, interpret, transform, visualize, etc. data about space of any sort. A big contribution to this field was brought by the development of informatics and the tools it provides for data manipulation. Informatics is an important component of the geo-information and spatial planning discipline and good knowledge and skills in this field are, if not necessary, at least a great advantage.
As space is becoming more and more scare, the issue of good special planning is delicate and highly specialised professionals are needed to analyse, develop and plan spatial strategies all over the world, for a sustainable development of the human society. Research Institutes, governmental agencies, public authorities and private consultancies are just a few of the potential employer of a graduate in the field of geo-information and spatial planning.
Modern information technologies have found their way into forestry and are there to stay. The Forest Information Technology study programme combines conventional forestry methods with IT applications, transforming a subject steeped in tradition into a trend-setting international model of success. The outstanding feature of this study programme is the cooperative partnership of the University of Applied Sciences Eberswalde with the Warsaw University of Life Sciences. Upon successful completion of all programme requirements candidates may be awarded Master degrees from both Universities. The study programme qualifies for an occupational activity in the application range of information technologies (IT) in practice and research of the forest and environmental sector. Students will be enabled to detect relevant IT application areas and to plan and to technologically promote corresponding innovation processes.
The topics covered in this course will provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of geo-information technology.
The MSc Integrated Urbanism and Sustainable Design aims to train a new generation of experts and decision-makers to face the tremendous environmental, cultural and social challenges resulting from the rapid urbanisation and ongoing societal transformation currently taking place in the Middle East and North Africa.
Graduate study in geodesy at Bogazici University provides a balanced combination of course work and research. The primary objective of the graduate program is to train specialists and/or theoreticians (required for research and teaching) in geodesy, capable of creative and original thinking and disseminating new ideas and concepts in related activities in Turkey.
As an MSc in landscape architecture and urban design, you shape the future urban environments and housing areas, parks and landscapes, so that they provide excellent human and natural settings for many years to come.
The Aberystwyth Universitys MA Landscape and Territory is your opportunity to develop an advanced critical appreciation of cultural and political geography with perspectives on landscape and territory. You will master an array of analytical and interpretive techniques crucial to engaging with a range of pressing modern issues, including surveillance, regulation and control, as well as more fundamental human phenomena such as ethnicity, gender and the contestation of power
The scientific master’s programme in Geo Spatial Technologies consists of a single stage of study and lasts a total of four semesters. The focus of the studies is in the acquisition of scientific knowledge and skills in geoinformatics, remote sensing and visualisation of spatial information.
<p> The Master of Science in Environmental Geosciences examines the relationship between man and his environment and its consequences. An attempt is made to analyse and understand the different aspects of this relationship and to quantify its interactions with a view, finally, to being able to propose action strategies.</p>
120 ECTS programme, with four main areas os specialisation: 1. Ancient technologies and rock art (lithis, ceramics, architecture, rock art, etc.) 2. Taphonomy and representation methods (including underwater archaeology techniques) 3. Geo-Archaeology 4. Heritage Management (including computer applications)
This Masters takes an integrated approach to landscape theory, practice and policy. It will prepare you for a career in landscape research or in practice and policy within landscape, heritage and environment contexts.
