Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

apply characteristics, types, and processing of spatial data in problem solving

manage spatial and non-spatial data in ArcGIS

analyse vector and raster data using ArcMap

produce maps at a professional standard

identify a problem in their discipline and use GIS to solve the problem

critically analyse limitations of GIS applications in terms of accuracy and scale in a GIS project.
