On campus requirements
This course is offered face-to-face through Curtin's Bentley campus, located in Perth, Western Australia.
Applications for credit towards a course are assessed on an individual basis. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to complete the course and may be granted for formal education qualifications, non-formal learning from non-award programs of study and informal learning through work experiences. Further information can be found at http://futurestudents.curtin.edu.au/non-school-leavers/rpl.cfm
This course introduces the core skills and techniques required to process and analyse location-based data and remotely sensed imagery collected through space and time. Students are exposed to the principles and applications of geographic information systems and remote sensing with a focus on their practical usage to a range of different disciplines including environment, agriculture, mining, defence and urban planning. It assumes little to no prior knowledge in the field and is suitable for “up-skillers” seeking the ability to capture, process, and add meaning to location-based data. This course is available on-campus and by distance education (via online learning) to Australian and International students.
