Learning objectives
The course aims at providing key concepts for the understanding of geospatial and mobility data, as well as the basic competences for the management of such information through spatial and spatio-temporal databases.
Expected learning outcomes
Students are expected to be able to utilize and integrate georeferenced data from heterogeneous sources. Moreover, students will be able to organize and query geospatial and mobility data using both a spatial DBMS and a GIS platform, and, in addition, to use a few analytical functions.
