SUMMER SCHOOL IN GEOINFORMATICS

On 10-16 May 2015 Summer School will be organized in Tashkent in the frame of Tempus GE-UZ project. The programme of the Summer School is responding to this key question: “How GE-UZ enabling sustainable development in UZ? During the week keynote lectures will be delivered by professors and leading experts from GE-UZ project partner universities. Relevant lectures and practical sessions will be delivered by national and international teaching staff. The participants will work in two groups “3D Laser Scanning” and “GIS in Environmental Protection”.

3D Laser Scanning

Mission: To save Uzbekistan’s cultural heritage buildings.

Group leaders: Milan Horemuz (KTH) and Utkir Shermanov (TIIM)

The aim of this group is to measure a historical building by terrestrial laser scanning techniques and construct a 3D building model.

indexAfter the week course participants will gain knowledge about concepts, working principles and different applications of laser scanner and be able to apply the knowledge to various engineering problems and perform data processing techniques.

Prerequisites: Successfully completion of Geodesy course and good computer skills are obligatory to participate in this course.

 
 
 

GIS in Environment Protection

Mission: Let’s do better decisions for friendly environment.

 Group leaders: Christopher Traun (PLUS), Sherzod Rakhmonov (TIIM)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The environmental problems we face require profound decisions, be it in the determination of appropriate countermeasures or the minimization of additional stress on our ecosystems due to new infrastructure projects.  Since our environment is inherently spatial, the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has a long tradition in delivering the quantitative basis for such decisions. In this Summer School we will explore state of the art methods for monitoring, analysing and simulating environmental processes and their resulting patterns in their spatial and sometimes also temporal dimension. While the first part of the Summer School is devoted to the relevant core concepts and building blocks of spatial analysis, remote sensing and spatial statistics placed within an environmental context, the second part focuses on the development of integrative case studies using local data. A tight coupling of conceptual input and its direct hands-on-application in lab sessions ensures a good transferability of theory into practice.

 The main aim of the course is to provide participants with practical and methodological skills which make them capable to use main spatial analysis techniques of GIS in solving Environmental Management issues.

After successful completion, course participants will gain knowledge about GIS, RS and concepts, data acquisition techniques, methods of spatial analysis for decision making in environmental challenges.

Prerequisites: In order to attend course participants should know main concepts of GIS, have to demonstrate understanding of ArcGIS software, additionally ESRI Virtual Campus Course Certificates that can be obtained online will be an advantage.
