"Geo-visualisation in Environmental Research"

Online registration for this training course will be open till 31st August 2007.
Geo-visualisation is a rather new tool for understanding, interpretation and assessment of environmental data. Geo-visualisation of landscape patterns and processes offers an innovative approach to present and discuss results of data collection, data analysis and data simulation. Cartography and scientific graphics form the roots of geo-visualisation however it is all based on the digital principles of Geographical Information Systems.
The course provides an overview of the different forms of geovisualisation. Aspects of presentation and the criteria to develop and to use such geo-visualisations will be discussed.
The course addresses young scientists of different fields and disciplines such as environmental scientists, land use planners and ecologists who are interested in learning the techniques and fundamentals of geovisualisation. Target participants are PhD students and early-stage researchers (e.g. post-doctoral researchers), who will benefit from the interdisciplinary approach intended by this course.
