This module will build on existing mapping and surveying techniques introduced in GEG4203. It will consist of three connected blocks of teaching centred on digital techniques that all represent key skills in Physical Geography: Digital cartography and remote sensing, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and numerical modelling approaches. For each of the three blocks, lectures will introduce the principles and provide case histories of applications, and laboratory practicals will be used to provide "hands-on" experience of key software packages and the handling of digital data. Assessed coursework assignments, including seminar presentations as well as written submissions, will be used to test the understanding of the subject matter and to discuss key issues in each of the three blocks.
