This subject challenges the student to utilise their entire learned spatial toolbox on a real-world modelling problem. The subject teaches students how to turn tools into models, and introduces the idea of developing applications from those models. Students will employ vector, raster and 3-dimensional analysis to provide creative solutions to a planning problem. Tasks will be tackled in a structured manner, using flowcharting, project management, background research and formal reporting. Uncertainty management is also addressed. As such it is a capstone subject (i.e. a subject that integrates your prior learning in other subjects) for GIS and remote sensing. The subject has no residential school. Students completing this subject have the ability to apply advanced knowledge and skills in GIS and remote sensing to lead a spatial analysis project through its entire life cycle, from concept to solution and final report.
