In response to a demand for courses, such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS), in which Computing and Information Technology are applied to the processing and analysis of geospatial data, the University of Aberdeen has launched a new postgraduate programme (MSc, Diploma or Certificate) from September 2005. Applied Geospatial Technology covers the fundamentals of techniques for acquiring, processing, classifying, visualising and analysing spatially-referenced data of the Earth, and their application to study of the Earth's surface features. Included are techniques such as land survey, photogrammetry, global positioning systems (GPS), airborne and satellite remote sensing, digital image processing, GIS and Geovisualisation.
