Course description:

Students will acquire theoretical background and practical usage of geoinformation modeling according to contemporary international norms and standards

Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
  • Maintain topographic, cartographic, maritime and navigation, and land information systems, integrate and visualise spatial information.
  • Use information technology in solving geodetic and geoinformation tasks.
  • Recognise problems and tasks in the application of geodetic and geoinformation principles and methods, and select proper procedures for their solution.
  • Keep pace with and adopt new technological achievements in the field of surveying, geoinformation systems and services based on the position, and the changes in regulations, norms and standards.

Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course
  • Enumerate parts and functions of a geoinformation system,
  • Recognize the need for modeling of geospatial information in contemporary GIS applications,
  • Create a conceptual model of a geoinformation system using ER and UML notation,
  • Explain geospatial data indexing methods,
  • Differentiate metric and topological operations on geospatial data,
  • Apply the operations of raster algebra for solving interdisciplinary tasks,
  • Analyze benefits and drawbacks of topological model,
  • Describe the universe of discourse using geospatial models,
  • Describe the purpose of normizations of geoinformation, enumerate normization iniciatives,
  • Apply appropriate norms and standards in modeling of geoinformation
