The aim of the Spatial Research Project is to allow students to undertake supervised project work in a field of their own choice within the broad discipline area of spatial science. The unit provides the opportunity to advance students' knowledge in a specific field of interest, bringing together skills obtained in other spatial science units. At the end of the project, students will have gained skills in some or all of the following: project design and justification, undertaking a literature review, posing research questions and setting research aims and objectives, undertaking data collection and analysis, managing data and presenting a project thesis using scientific report writing and presentation techniques.
