EN1230 - Geomatics II (GIS)
This course is designed to provide students with an overview of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology. It is designed to introduce basic principles and skills associated with remote sensing; orthophotography interpretation and GPS technology are addressed through lectures and practical applications. Students are exposed to satellite imagery, processes and products and the role of GIS technology in natural resources applications. Students will gain valuable skills and hands-on experience to support resource-based GIS projects typical in the workforce. Using vector-based GIS data models, students will create databases, manage spatial and attribute data, generate map-based and tabular outputs, and perform geographic analysis. The course culminates with a major GIS project designed to reinforce the skills covered in the course.
