About the course

The objective of this course is to understand and use geographic information systems (GIS), using the software ArcGIS. This beginner course focuses on how to display, manipulate and create vector data (points, lines, polygons) and will introduce raster data (e.g., digital elevation models). The assignments will mainly use data from Sweden and Swedish coordinate systems and will focus on solving problems related to ecology and Earth science. There is also a strong focus on effectively communicating spatial data through maps.
