Advanced Digital Landscape Analysis with GIS

The course works in partnership with current research projects to offer large amounts of realistic supporting data for student projects, which can be carried out individually or in groups. The objective is for the students to look for new angles of approach in analysis and presentation of the material. The work will also include classical analyses such as sight analysis and analyses prior to wind power establishments. In addition to a number of thematic and general lectures on data and analytical methods, the researchers from the various research projects will also provide subject-specific lectures. Emphasis is placed on the theory of landscape analysis and the theory of digital methods and techniques associated with GIS. The course concludes with a poster display of the students’ projects.

Objectives

The aims of the course are to provide training in carrying out digital landscape analysis with GIS, with the emphasis on the development of methods and approaches, and to create a broad understanding of the possibilities of digital landscape analysis within landscape architecture and spatial planning through a range of projects.

After having completed the course, the student should be abel to:
- Derive and handle spatial data and analysis.
- Analyse and describe spatial relationships with GIS based on relevant theories and methods.
- Present spatial analysis written, orally and with illustrations/models.
- Motivate choice of data, methods and implementation based on problem.
