Course content

The course will give an introduction to spatial data infrastructures (SDI), and present implementations of relevant SDI's. The course will give an understanding of available data sets in the national SDI of Norway, how these data sets are specified and made available for users. An introduction to capturing and processing of point-cloud-based data and also an introduction to use of scripting for user customization of GIS software will be given. Students will also get some experience using available data in geographical information analysis ending up with areal plans. Representation of areal plans and making them available in an SDI is also part of the course.

Learning outcome

After completing the course, participants shall independently have:

Knowledge about:
- Spatial data infrastructures in general
- The national spatial infrastructure for Norway: the exploitation of the available information in own projects
- the principles for specification, publication and legal rights part og an SDI
- how to evaluate own usability of available information and data sets
- relevant GIS analysis for areal planning
- quality evaluation of the analysis
- how to represent areal plans in digital form according to accepted specifications
- how to use areal plans in building projects
- how to capture and process point-cloud based data

Skills to:
- identify, download and use information from an SDI
- represent areal plans in digital form
- use information from areal plans in building projects
- use Python scripting for user customization of GIS software

General competence:
- be aware of available spatial information and tools, and know what is relevant for building projects

Learning methods and activities

The course will use lectures, exercises, team work and discussions. The student activities will be concentrated on team-based project work, where CDIO principles are important.

Relevant software will be given at start up.

Actual software are ArcGIS and QGIS.

Compulsory assignments

  • Oral presentation

Further on evaluation

Portfolio assessment is the basis for the grade in the course, and compulsory work must be approved. The results for the parts in the portfolio assessment are given in %-scores, while the entire portfolio is assigned a letter grade. For a re-take of an examination, all assessments during the course must be re-taken.

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
