Compulsory module of the master’s: GIS for environmental analysis (EN)


This subject focuses on spatial analysis techniques of raster and vector models from the design and creation of databases to the resolution of environmental problems using multicriteria, three-dimensional, geostatistical analyses of networks and models. Scientists and managers of the territory use GIS to study the state of the environment, prepare reports on environmental phenomena, and model how the environment responds to natural factors and to those of human origin.
