In this course, you will get to know QGIS, an open software used in both in science and the private sector. The seminar addresses the theoretical background of GIS and spatial data as well as its practical application in the software.

This lecture introduces a social-ecological system perspective on humans and their environment through a spatial science lens. Taking spatially explicit approaches, we will identify features and trends of society linked to location or spatial features. Thereby, this course will engage both with biophysical as well as social characteristics that relate to specific types of interactions between people and their environment.
