About offering

This information is relevant for students commencing study in 2020. If you plan to commence study in 2019, please view the current offering.

This course provides the tools for managing spatial data and remotely sensed imagery to analyse and begin to extract further meaning (intelligence). Along with two units on GIS and remote sensing, it is packaged with map design, web mapping and visualisation, data management, programming, and photogrammetry, ensuring a well-rounded exposure to key areas. Case studies focus on location-based issues embedded in a range of different disciplines, including biodiversity, agriculture, urban planning, mining, defence, and emergency services. It assumes little to no prior knowledge in the field and is suitable for “up-skillers” who are seeking methods to extract additional meaning from location-based events, career changers and anyone who works in industries that collect geolocated information looking to make the next step. This course is available on-campus and by distance education (via online learning) to Australian and International students.

What you'll learn

  • apply the fundamental principles of geospatial technology to a range of application areas
  • analyse spatial data and issues to devise novel and appropriate solutions
  • select appropriate datasets/imagery and software to analyse, transform, and present findings in ways that are suitable to a range of audiences
  • recognise and be engaged in spatial issues that occur in other countries and/or on global scales
  • understand, value and interact with people across different cultures and respect different points of view
  • engage and learn with industry to develop initiative, problem solving ability, team and communication skills as well as gain exposure to real-world, location-based, problems

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
