University of Twente

Certificate / Diploma Short course Enschede

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Mathematics, natural sciences and computer science
Course summary Learn to develop technologies required for analyzing, distributing and visualizing geo-spatial data
Course description Geo-spatial data is the major driver of today’s information society. More Big Geo Data than ever is being created by smart phones, satellites, and sensors. This data is used for an increasing number of scientific purposes that aim to benefit the world. It’s a matter of gathering, analyzing, distributing and visualizing the data to make it fit for specific use, e.g. in systems for improving agricultural practice or creating healthy cities. The technologies supporting these processes are at the core of geoinformatics. Efficiently managing these amounts of data takes more than skills. It also requires keeping pace with ongoing technological developments and understanding how to interpret them. That is why ITC’s specialization in Geoinformatics offers courses that teach the required multi-disciplinary approach. You will learn to design and develop algorithms, models, and tools that can process geo-spatial data into reliable, actionable information. You will also be exploring practical areas of application, such as water scarcity, forest monitoring, and urban infrastructures.
