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.
This course will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to practise professionally as a spatial planner.
The Master in Geography and Spatial Planning (former "Master in Spatial Development and Analysis") provides insights into the analysis of the patterns of spatial development and spatial governance in Europe, with a strong emphasis on integrative approaches and sustainable development strategies.
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.
The way the world thinks about transport has changed. We now look for responses beyond ‘predict and provide’, and take a more holistic and longer-term view about the future of transport and its relationship with the development of sustainable communities. This integrated Masters programme provides insight into this evolving debate and addresses fundamental issues such as ‘how can transport contribute to more sustainable development?’
Our proposed M.A. program is of high standards, dedicated to training of students in a wide variety of topics related to prehistory, environmental archaeology, subsistence, past adaptations to changing environments, and the varied exact and natural sciences involved in the research of such topics.
The removal of earth containing mineralized ores causes stress in the rock and hence stability of the mine itself is continually changing. These changes can be rapid and difficult to detect. Geomechanics is the science dealing with the design of structures in rock. Upon completion of the program, the graduate will be better prepared to understand complex issues in rock mass behaviors. Rock Mechanics.
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.
This Certificate in Environmental Sustainability will focus on the integration of several distinct topic areas, including sustainability, policy (energy and environmental), economics, and global resource allocation. Students will focus on the impact of policy on the implementation of sustainable practices, sustainable design, and energy resources on the national and global scale.
The MRes in Advanced Spatial Analysis and Visualisation at UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) started in September 2011. The course is designed to reflect the latest developments in spatial data analysis and visualisation reflecting CASA's reputation in the fields of geographic, urban and architectural information systems. This innovative course provides an exciting opportunity to study at UCL with an MRes acting as a pathway to a PhD or further career in Advanced Spatial Analysis and Visualisation (ASAV).
