- EquipmentDetails - Audio headset with microphone are required to access weekly consultation and help desk facilities.
The subject provides a practical background to the use of geographic information systems and basic surveying in the practice of civil engineering. Geographic Information Systems are used in an enormous range of applications where there is geographic data to be stored, queried, analysed and displayed.
The subject incorporates working with maps, coordinate systems, projections, spatial analysis, raster and vector data and database systems. Familiarisation with GIS software (ArcGIS), including generation maps, interpretation and analysis and tabular outputs using data from urban planning, transport planning, demography, environmental and civil engineering studies will be taught.
- GIS assignment (35%)
- Surveying assignment (20%)
- Test (45%)
