Applied geography and geoinformatics

Apply it, location awaits.

What will you learn?

The study of Applied Geography and Geoinformatics opens a way to understanding of spatial analyses and their evaluations; no matter whether related to Physical and/or Human Geography. It is stated, that about 80 percent of human activities have a relation to a specific location. The methodological background and related applications enables to answer several questions related to a location. The following examples are provided: "Which combination of requirements leads to landslides?", "Where should I locate a new office of my company?", "Which areas and how many people will be affected by so-called 20-years floods?" or "Which utility data and maps are available for my area of interest?". Applied Geography and Geoinformatics uses the cornerstones of data and processing modelling. However, it adds understanding of a space in contrary to purely oriented informatic study programmes.
