Aims

This module introduces students to the modern computer-based approaches employed to represent and manage spatial data and information for survey and geographic information systems applications. The course concentrates on both the underpinning theory and applied aspects of how digital spatial data captured by a range of digital devices is modelled within information systems.

Outline Of Syllabus

The module syllabus will introduce students to the emergent standards employed in information systems for the capture and representation of spatial data. On the basis of these standards the course will cover a wide range of different spatial scales of spatial data and information modelling for information systems representation including; internal and external building model detail for BIM (Building Information Management); 2D spatial models of man-made and natural features; 2.5D spatial models; 3D modelling and representation of man-made objects; multi-scale representation and information systems. Aspects of project management are introduced and the theory and practice of modern spatial data modelling are combined through the module long project that builds into a portfolio of assessed materials. Practicals will be used to expose students to the practice of spatial data modelling via a module long individual integrated project.
