Geographical Information and Analysis


This concentration area provides students with a wide range of geographical techniques. All geography students are required to take three introductory courses from this area, as these basic geographical techniques are essential for a better understanding of all other subjects in human, physical and regional geography.

Certainly, geographical techniques per se are interesting subjects for study. For students interested in advanced techniques and their application in geographical studies, they can specialize in geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing.

Most courses include interesting laboratory work offering hands-on experience to students.

The Department is well equipped with advanced GIS and digital image processing systems. Besides the courses listed, qualified students may undertake geography projects in these subjects in their final year. Students interested in postgraduate studies are also encouraged to pursue research utilizing equipment in these laboratories.
