Management of the urban environment increasingly requires reliable spatial information, e.g. on land use, infrastructure, population density or environmental qualities. Especially with the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) spatial information can be stored, retrieved, combined, analysed and displayed (mapped) in a flexible way.
More about this thesis track
The thesis track Geo-information Science equips you with the knowledge and skills to use GIS for solving and managing complex environmental problems in the urban environment.
For current research topics, please refer to the website of the Geo-Information and Remote Sensing Group.
The following courses are part of the programme Urban Environmental Management when selecting the thesis track Geo-information Science.
