This GIS course enables participants to identify potentials of spatial data and to put them to use.
Theoretical essentials in geoinformatics form the foundation, in order to gain a broad understanding of the subject matter. The second part brings import, visualisation and analysis of geodata, using OpenSource-tools, into focus. The used data will primarily come from OpenStreetMap.
This course can be held in English and German.
