Short course: Introduction to Coastal & Marine GIS

 

Delivered by ABPmer’s experienced GIS consultants and GeoData’s GIS trainers, this course uses case studies and hands-on activities to show how marine and coastal datasets can be used to support decision making.

As well as introducing marine data and GIS, the course considers common problems faced when mapping coastal and offshore environments. There is also an opportunity to discuss with experts specific spatial data issues.

  • what GIS is, what spatial data is, raster and vector data models
