Admission information


- Spatial awareness while working with spatial data - Gaining and extending GIS knowledge - Ability to learn and leverage GIS applications - Familiarity with geo-databases - Ability to visualize and interpret spatial data - Reliable handling and preprocessing of city models for simulation purposes - Problem solving skills both individually and in groups


The official title of this course is "Advanced GIS for Environmental Engineering" (without "Theory", since this course provides a mixture of both theory and practical projects). Please ALL attend the first lecture appointment (see TUMOnline for location and time), where we will provide a short introduction to the course as well as explain other organizational matters. This course provides a general introduction to the usage and possibilities of geographical information systems (GIS) for Environmental Engineering. The major goal of this course is to provide an overview and potential of GIS in the context of semantic 3D city models. In addition to the theoretical part, some hands-on experience (e.g. mini-projects) shall be introduced during the course. These cover the spatio-semantic analyses and simulations on the basis of urban datasets.


Basic understanding of spatial data is recommended but can also be quickly learned during the course
