Description
Using modern GIS (geographic information systems) tools, students visualise some characteristics of geographic areas in a static and dynamic fashion. For instance, traffic on the roads, pollution in geographic areas, and crime maps are the typical output of such visualisations. The goal is to discover commonalities and patterns when observing several layers of geographic maps and moreover making operational decisions on e.g. traffic management, location of facilities, crime prevention, etc. The course wraps up all business related courses of the year and algorithmic approaches in a final complex product, typically a decision support system for respective decision makers.

Formative assessment: Feedback by tutors and peers during tutorial meetings
Summative assessment: Final project reports and presentations
Instructional approach: Frequent tutorial meetings during the analysis of the two broad projects in which progress is presented
