QGIS: software downloading in own computers, exploring the functions of it with the course work data
The main teaching methods include contact teaching, exercises done in groups and individually, coursework, and exam. The exam will be held in the end of the course and it is mostly based on ArcGIS exercises.
Exam 50% : Open computer/book Tabula exam executed at TAMK in adp classroom by using ArcMap, assessment 1-5
Course work 30 %: compulsory, assessment by grade classes 1/3/5
Remote sensing (drone mapping, laser scanned data) issues will cover 20% of the whole grade, questions will be included in the gis Tabula exam.

TAMK Main Campus
If you have work experience or studies on some other GIS software, please discuss alternative ways to do the course with the teacher(s).
The course exercises are related to the skills that environmental engineers commonly need in their working life.

Contact teaching and guided computer excercises approximately 50 h, self-study and excercises approximately 85 h. Total approximately 135 h.
Open file data and download services
Spatial data models, database management, visualization and thematic maps, searching functions, data entry, elementary proximity and overlay analysis
Environmental change observations based on different-aged aerial images
The student does not reach the level of satisfactory or does not do the exam neither the reports
The student can:
- download open file spatial data
- do the coordinate definitions
- separate vector and raster data from each others
- edit the appearance of the map objects and make thematic maps
- search map objects and save the results as separate files (layers)
- save and transfer data with gps device
- enter gps data into GIS
- explain the properties of aerial/satellite images and point cloud data
The student can in addition to previous mentioned:
- edit map objects and update attribute data
- utilize searching functions for efficient use of spatial data
- produce vector data
- rectify raster images
- maintain data of different coordinate systems gps data included
- visualise remote sensing data
The student can apply previous mentioned skills and elementary analysis tools in problem solving.
