Geographical information systems (GIS), used for managing geographic data, map-making and spatial analysis, has increased in importance in recent years. GIS knowledge is in demand on many parts of the labour market. The Master’s Programme in Human Geography with specialisation in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is suitable for social science and other students, as well as gainfully employed, who want to further develop their GIS knowledge.

While studying

The programme offers students to further develop their GIS knowledge and skills. Topics include geodatabase management and applied cartography, as well as advanced editing, analysis and thematic mapping. In addition, the programme deals with two important applications of GIS, namely transport planning and 3D modelling in a planning context. The utilization of computer-aided design (CAD) in conjunction with GIS is given special attention. The programme is taught in English.

Learning environment
The department has its own GIS computer lab equipped with up-to-date software. The main software used is ArcGIS Desktop. During the course of the programme, you will also use other GIS software, work with CAD programs and learn post-processing of maps in raster and vector graphics editors. Parts of the programme may be studied abroad by applying for exchange studies at a partner university.
