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.
The Master of Urban and Regional Planning offers a thorough grounding in urban and regional planning both to graduates wishing to enter the profession and to practising professionals wishing to upgrade their knowledge.
Academic training with a focus on solving spatial problems in rural areas and urban fringes by using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Earth observation imagery (remote sensing).
Human Geography is a research field which focuses on studying the spatial behaviour of people, firms and organisations. Or, to put it simply, it is a study that observes the relationship between human activities and their spatial environment. Because it is an integrative discipline, Human Geography serves as an excellent platform for integrating knowledge from various related disciplines, such as Sociology, Athropology, Psychology, International Relations, Economics, Business Administration and Development Studies.
Welcome to the International Program in Marine Geosciences at the University of Haifa, a one-year MSc program taught in English.
The programme focuses on the deliberate construction and reconstruction of the environment. It involves research, planning and design of landscape to create, maintain, protect and enhance places.
The GIMA programme does not solely cover the advanced use of GIS, but also management styles and the management of geoinformation and spatial data infrastructures in organisations.
The Graduate Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning offers a thorough grounding in urban and regional planning both to graduates wishing to enter the profession and to practising professionals wishing to upgrade their knowledge.
This postgraduate course equips students with the knowledge and skills they need to work as professional planners. The MSc gives full exemption from all the educational requirements of the Royal Town Planning Institute.
The aim of the MSc in Environmental Policy is to provide students with the professional knowledge, skills and tools to equip them for a career in the environmental field while contributing to a more sustainable and resilient future.
This programme challenges and stimulates students, who work in small groups on contemporary themes and learn to think critically about new developments. In this they receive personal supervision and a thorough training in methodology (how to conduct reliable comparative research).
The focus of this programme is on engineering solutions to transport issues, particularly how the design of systems determines the nature of how people and goods are transported. Students learn how to use engineering to meet the challenges of integrating different modes of transport and make travel safer, greener and more efficient. Students are first equipped with core technical skills in data collection, modelling, planning and engineering design. They then select from a range of options, all of which have practical applications.
The Master of Science program in Geoinformatics at Aalborg University, Copenhagen is directed at students with a bachelor’s degree in surveying, land management, urban planning, environmental planning, geography or study programs with similar contents interested in understanding the concepts and obtaining the necessary skills to manage various kinds of digital geographic information.
