“The WEPP and GeoWEPP Edition”
• Geospatial data analysis and mathematic modeling in GIS
• Digital Elevation Models and terrain analysis
• Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) for environmental modeling with GIS
• Dynamic modeling approaches in GIS

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

The lectures and computer lab exercises introduce concepts, theories and applications of geospatial analysis and modeling tools in GIScience. Special emphasis is put in this edition to the process-based soil and water conservation modeling. The new techniques enable students to analyze and assess geospatial physical and non-physical processes in landscapes. However, the lectures also present and discuss methods to analyze spatial challenges in managing the natural resources soil and water (e.g. surface/terrain analysis of spatial-temporal dynamics of fluxes due to concentrations or costs gradients in space and time).
