Synopsis: This unit is designed to teach students to make the best of their knowledge about the sciences behind the themes of thematic mapping, on the one hand, and GIS on the other, so that, in discussion with a supervisor, an application of digital spatial data handling relevant to their interests can be identified. In project formulation, the relevant data and information flow paths must be documented and sourced, the appropriate data model selected and data quality issues addressed. After that, efficient digital spatial data base assembly can take place and verification/testing commenced. This unit is a prerequisite for GYM4660, the final unit for the Postgraduate Diploma in Arts (GIS).

Assessment: Spatial database quality and suitability test: 100%

Prerequisites: Completion of GYM4920 and GYM4610, plus two of GYM4600, GYM4620, GYM4630, or GYM4640
