The subject provides students with hands-on experience in the application of various GIS packages and their use in the assessment of earth and biological resources, and in land and environmental management.
1. use and analyse spatially distributed data;
2. use ArcMap GIS software package;
3. assess earth and biological resources using GIS tools;
