The teaching methods include contact teaching, distance teaching, GIS exercises, GIS coursework (individual), drone exercise, collecting GPS- data, course exam. The exam will be carried out by solving spatial data management tasks in QGIS. The exam will contain also some questions concerning remote sensing issues
Exam 50% : Open computer/book Moodle exam executed at TAMK in adp classroom by using QGIS, assessment grades1-5
Course work 30 %: compulsory, assessment grades 1-5
Remote sensing (drone mapping, laser scanned data) issues will cover 20% of the whole grade, questions will be included in the GIS Moodle exam.

Remote Sensing data, aerial images, satellite images, laser scanning (point cloud) data
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 observations/change observations based on laser scanning and drone data
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.
