This subject introduces, explores and applies fundamental concepts of spatial analysis through the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The subject provides hands-on experience in how GIS may be used to analyse, visualise and communicate patterns of complex information. GIS problem-solving challenges and illustrations of proposed solutions are presented to students in natural and built environment contexts. Students learn the application and use of contemporary GIS software in a laboratory environment and engage in real world problem-solving via Australian and international examples.
