MScLandscape Ecology with Geographical Information Systems

This programme is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and technical skills required to fulfil a professional role involving the collection, management, analysis, modelling, manipulation and display of landscape ecology, land use planning, and environmental conservation datasets using Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

In both the UK and overseas the concept of landscape-scale land management has gained acceptance over the last decade. The implementation of environmental conservation policies and strategies based on a landscape ecology approach is increasingly dependent on spatial data that are managed and manipulated within a GIS. As a result, the Ecological Skills Gap Project has identified a clear need for ecologists with experience of GIS and for GIS specialists with an understanding of the environmental data they are being asked to manage and manipulate within a GIS....

With the continuous demands of the construction world and the development of infrastructure to support communication, utilities and transport there is a need for the expertise of the engineering surveyor.

The specialist skills and knowledge of the engineering surveyor are often needed from the initial planning stages right through the construction stage to the end of a project. The role of the engineering surveyor does not stop then, as monitoring for the short or long term movement or deformation of infrastructure, buildings or ground may be needed for safety or other purposes

This course has developed from the previously successful MSc courses offered at the University of Nottingham in the fields of surveying, geodesy and more generally geomatics.... [-]

Overview

Geographical information management is an exciting and rapidly growing branch of information technology (IT), incorporating satellite remote sensing, aerial photography, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS), to derive information which is essential for the management of the earth’s resources at local, national and global scales.

The management of geographic information is now integral to decision making processes at local, national and international scales. Globally, the rate of spatial data capture has never been greater. The data requires appropriate management to ensure quality, correct usage and robust solutions derived from the data. As one of the UK’s AgriTech centres, we are applying these principles in the realm of digital agriculture to increase the efficiency and sustainability of the agriculture sector. Specialists are required to generate, manage and advise on data use in both the private and public sectors. The Geographical Information Management MSc provides the training required for these specialists.... [-]
