Inhalte der LV

The IT Competence Field Spatial Business Intelligence (SBI) is a novel area that has emerged at the interface between GISystems (GIS) and Business Intelligence (BI) technologies. SBI allows integrating different systems and technologies, saving valuable resources, visualizing organization’s assets, streamlining work flow processes, minimizing risk and enhancing business decision-making. Only recently it has been realized that integrating the geospatial component of business operations through GIS technology provides business intelligence solutions that lead to better business decisions.

In this course, the major issues are the application of methodological and technical skillsI to real-world SBI-application problems, and the critical discussion of results which are presented in the SBI literature. Students will work in teams on different real-world or methodological/technical problems, will develop solutions and present them to the study group

Main topics covered in case study projects are:

  • spatial data integration: from enterprise databases and data warehouses to spatial data warehouses
  • spatially enabling enterprise data, integrating external geospatial market data, spatial data maintenance
  • mapping database contents: ArcGIS Server/Geoserver (APIs, REST interfaces, RIA toolkits, WMS and WFS)
  • thematic mapping and spatial analysis, BigData visualization techniques
Software used: ESRI ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Server, MSQL Server 2008R2 (commercial); ProstgesSQL with PostGIS, GeoServer (open source)
Geodata used: geocoded customer and business data, postcode and administrative geographies with geodemographic attributes, consumer- and lifestyle-data, navigable street networks and background maps

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)
