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 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.
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.
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).
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.
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 international Master study programme "Forest Information Technology (FIT)" is an interdisciplinary education offer with its main focus on environmental information technologies (IT) such as geographic information systems, remote sensing, database management, forest ecosystem modelling and management and landscape research. But the the majority of modules is related to IT fundamentals and forest and environment related applications of IT.
The University of Haifa's International Master's Degree in Maritime Civilizations offers students an exceptional opportunity to explore the history, archeology and fabric of maritime societies, as well as the natural environment in which they developed and currently exist.
The topics covered in this course will provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of geo-information technology.
