This unit builds on KGG212 GIS: Spatial Analysis and focuses on advanced aspects of spatial data analysis, including practical aspects of programming for GIS customisation. At the start of semester you will spend one day in the field collecting GNSS data on a landslide near Hobart. This datasets is then used in the rest of the unit, starting with exploratory spatial data analysis (ESDA), interpolation techniques and terrain modelling, geostatistics, and error propagation modelling. The second part of the unit focuses on GIS application development using the Python programming language. These skills enable you to develop new algorithms and tools, automate tasks, and build custom GIS solutions. This unit will provide you with highly valued skills in the spatial industry.
KGG375 is an advanced unit in the BSc GIS and Remote Sensing Major.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.
