Exploring our Digital Planet

Year One, Semester Two

Course Code: GY1017

This module will introduce how geographers are equipping themselves with the latest computing advances and software developments to visualise, query, analyse and criticise the increasingly large amounts of data that are available to scientists and the public. Examples of these data include census information, satellite imagery and aerial photographs, GPS and navigation data. These data can easily be stored and analysed within a Geographical Information System. In this module we uncover what a GIS is and how it can be used to generate digital maps and extract relevant information from a range of sources.
