Algorithms in GIS


The course gives thorough theoretical and practical knowledge about the most common spatial algorithms in GIS. The theory concentrates mainly on spatial concepts and algorithms (both vector and raster). In the practical part of the course, the student implements some well-known algorithms using a standard programming language. It is highly recommended that you study Geographical databases before this course. BE AWARE: This course requires some programming skills. If you have not programmed before, you are not recommended to attend this course.

NOTE: This is an internet based course. You are not supposed to travel to Lund to attend. This course can only be taken as part of the iGEON master program.

Teaching consists of lectures and practical exercises that you will submit to the teachers. The course ends with a written examination.
