Unit of study_

Spatial Science Research Project - GEOG5005

Year - 2018

This unit provides students with an opportunity for research and in-depth inquiry in a spatial science topic of interest allowing students to further extend their knowledge or theoretical and conceptual material presented in other units. The research topic will be arranged between the student and supervisor and must have a spatial science focus. Potential topics range from modeling coastal impacts of predicted sea level rise, applying remote sensing in vegetation change detection to the spatial modeling of public transport accessibility. The project topic may involve a spatial modeling or field component, or may be entirely literature-based.
