GIS for Water Resource Management Course

GIS for Water Resource Management Course

Introduction

The aim of this course is to provide both a solid theoretical understanding and a comprehensive practical introduction to the use of geographic information systems and remote sensing technologies for the analysis and solution of different water and environmental problems.

Target Group

 

The course is designed for professionals (engineers and scientists) active in the water/environmental sector, especially those involved in planning and management of water systems as well as numerical modeling. Prerequisites are a basic knowledge of computing and water related topics.

Duration

5 days

Course Objectives

  • Gain a sound fundamental understanding of the GIS and remote sensing technologies
  • To understand the basic principles underlying the GIS/model-based management of water resources and environment
  • To become familiar with the GIS-based analytical and problem-solving techniques for sustainable planning and management of water resources and environmental problems.
