AbstractProblems encountered in forest- and landscape management often have a spatial dimension. Methods and technics of geoinformation sciences GIS and/or optimization give support to identify good solutions. Students learn to conceptualize, implement and combine I) spatial analysis & modeling of geodata and, II) optimization techniques, based on theoretical inputs and practical work on small projects.
Objective- Conceptualize spatial problems and design a work flow from "data processing" through "advanced spatial analysis" to "presentation of results";
- Implement a specific workflow in standard GIS software, verify and validate procedures and results;
- Conceptualize an optimization problem and specify a workflow and the tools to solve the problem;
- Implement a specific optimization problem in standard software, verify the procedures and check the validity of results;
- Process problem-specific spatial data, export them to standard exchange file formats, and import them into optimization- or analysis tools;
- Conceptualize, implement and solve spatially-explicit optimization models by integrating spatial analysis with optimization techniques.
