Bachelor’s degree course Geoinformatics and cartography consist of 6 terms (three years of study) and graduated students have skills in the fields of geoinformatics, geoinformation technology and cartography.
In geoinformatics are students educated in the basics of digital representation of reality, geoinformation technologies of geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, global positioning systems (GPS), geostatistics, computer cartography and its applications in geographical problems. A geographical part of the study is focused on various branches of geography (climatology, hydrology etc.) and the methods of study of the landscape sphere. An integral part of education is cartography and its use in geoinformatics, as well as geography.
The study plan is taught in the Czech language, selected courses are provided also in English for exchange students.
Aim of the study
The main aim of the study is to prepare university-educated geoinformatics with a brief overview of the fields of geoinformation technology. Graduated students are able to use the potential of geoinformation technologies in various branches of geography. University education develops the independence and individual creativeness of students. The study plan is focused on taking advance in the practice. During working out of semester practice students use knowledge from lectures and their practical skills.
Graduates are able to work with GIS software, write documentation and partly participate in research and development activities in common geographical problematic using geographic geoinformation technology. During the study, students acquire theoretical knowledge and skills in geoinformatics and geographical disciplines. Students become familiar with the most modern software products and will receive basic knowledge of computer and mathematical discipline, the theoretical basis of informatics, programming and information systems. Students are also experienced in the implementation of the software project.
The highlight of the study is working out of a diploma thesis. The student demonstrates the ability to work independently and professionally to apply the knowledge and skills gained during the study.
