Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the Built Environment
Delve into the basics of geographic information system (GIS)
Designing and developing the built environment is a challenging task, with sustainability being a critical parameter in any development. Therefore, urban planners, architects, valuers, and engineers need a robust tool to assist decision-making.
On this four-week course from Universiti Malaya, you’ll learn the basics of geographic information systems, how it works, and how GIS can benefit disciplines in the built environment.
Advance your skills in spatial analysis
As you start to unpack the components of GIS, you’ll gain an understanding of how it can be used as an effective problem-solving tool through spatial analysis.
Next, you’ll explore projections in GIS to further your skills in spatial analysis.
Explore GIS in urban planning and the built environment
To help put your knowledge into practice, you’ll explore GIS in different built environment disciplines such as urban planning and management and architecture.
With this knowledge, you’ll develop practical skills you can use in your professional context.
Learn from the experts at the Universiti Malaya
Finally, you’ll explore the benefits of using GIS in the built environment, including real estate and construction. This understanding will help you communicate the advantages of using GIS in your organisation.
