This units aims to develop a broader and more comprehensive understanding of spatial scientific methods and how to analyse scientific data using a diversity of existing methods employed in the various scientific sub-disciplines. The unit will include current research projects from within the faculty. Research projects and accompanied data will be presented via a short introduction and then the required methodology to analyse the type of data will be studied and applied.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Apply prior knowledge from a range of scientific methods in the analysis and interpretation of spatial data sets;
2. Demonstrate knowledge of spatial extensions such as spatial sampling and interpolation methods, cartographic modelling skills and point-pattern analysis along with associated new technologies;
3. Develop an understanding of the key concepts underpinning each method and the associated assumptions and limitations. Acquiring problem solving skills to enable the resolution of new problems and data types;
4. Communicate effectively using well-developed scientific thinking which leads to the formulation of a justified recommendation or advice;
5. Develop ability to recognise scientific problems and being able to apply independent critical scientific thinking that is globally relevant; and
6. Work effectively as an individual and cooperatively within a team setting.
