Inhalte der LV

The course focuses on transportation and logistics related real-world applications of GIS-T. It is divided into two major sub-modules. The first deals with issues of GIS-based spatial analysis & modeling and selected examples of real-world applications in general using adequate software tools. The second sub-module shifts attention to GIS-based spatial analysis & modeling, especially to GIS network routing problems that have become prominent in GIS-T: the vehicle routing problem with pickup, delivery and time windows and selected examples of real-world applications in general using adequate software tools.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

After successful completion of the module, students are able to design a GIS-T (network) data and analysis model in a given application context and solve network routing and network allocation problems.

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

According to the examination regulation full attendance is intended for a PI. Absence in one unit is tolerated if a proper reason is given.
