SPA556 Spatial Project (8)

In this subject, students will develop and execute an independent project, building on previous studies in spatial science. The subject will provide conceptual and practical experience in spatial project management. Each student will identify and undertake an applied spatial project relevant to their own interests. On completion of this subject students will have designed, implemented and critically evaluated their own advanced spatial project.
