Study course Geoinformatics enables students to continue improving the knowledge and skills of bachelor study Geoinformatics and geography in areas of geoinformatics, geoinformation technology and its applications in geosciences.
In a follow-up study, students learn the theoretical approaches in geoinformation technology (GIT trends in modelling of GIS, the state information policy) and the theoretical parts of cartographic disciplines (stylistic of cartographic works, atlas and web cartography). On the other hand, gained theoretical information they used for practical applications in the fields of applied geoinformatics (geoinformatics in the physical and socio-economic geography, geology, environment and other fields such as agriculture and forestry, not least in the modelling of natural hazards and landscape planning). In the study of geography, the emphasis is on further study of geographical sub-disciplines and their methods of the study landscape sphere.
The study plan is taught in the Czech language, selected courses are provided also in English for exchange students.
Aim of the study
The aim is to prepare university-educated geoinformatics who have an overview of geoinformation technology and can use them in the sub-disciplines of geography. More theoretical knowledge is connected with practical skills in the solution of term projects. A study develops separate thinking and a creative approach in the solution of projects. The learning plan is focusing on items that are most popular in practice.
A master thesis is the peak of the study. Here student demonstrates the ability to work independently and professionally and the ability to apply theoretical and practical knowledge and skills gained during the study.
After the second phase of studies, students are able to realize operational, documentation, as well as research and development activities, including solving problems with the use of geographic geoinformation technology.
