Introduction to GPS and GIS
Next course date: Due to  the COVID-19 pandemic this course has been postponed until further notice

This course will guide students through the process of preparing, analysing, and interpreting spatial data with the aid of spatial analysis tools. The course also serves as a foundation for our intermediate level GIS course, hydrological modelling, and terrain analysis using digital elevation models, which will be run at a later date.

GIS Intermediate: Hydrological modelling and terrain analysis using digital elevation

Next course date: Due to  the COVID-19 pandemic this course has been postponed until further notice

The purpose of this short learning programme is to teach practitioners to derive a number of important environmental data sets from digital elevation models. A series of catchment modelling tools will be explored and used to model water flows in river catchments. Students will be exposed to a number of terrain analysis tools that will allow them to model terrain morphology and visibility. Although each of these tools is fairly easy to use, their power lies in combining them into complex models. By learning how to combine these tools effectively, participants will be provided with a powerful means of effective environmental management.
