1 Geographical Information Technology (GIT) Stellenbosch University Prof Adriaan van Niekerk

2 Stellenbosch Outline Overview of GIT SU Programmes Short courses Land cover? Stellenbosch University

3 Overview of GIT training GIT training is only offered at Department of Geography & Environmental Studies (DGES) Some other departments have applied (postgraduate) courses in which GIS is used GIT training is offered in two formats: As part of degree programmes As part of short courses

4 Formal GIT training GIT training is only offered at Department of Geography & Environmental Studies (DGES) Some other departments have applied (post-graduate) courses in which GIS is used Formats of formal training Programmes BSc GeoInformatics (3 years) BSc Hons GeoInformatics (1 year) MSc GeoInformatics (2 years) BA Informatics (GeoInformatics) 3 years BA Hons GIS (1 year) MA GIS (2 years) Short courses PLATO Accredited

5 BSc GeoInformatics 1 st year Geo-Environmental Science (2) Physics (2) Maths (2) Computer Science (2) 2 nd year GIS (1), Spatial Data Management (1) Earth Observation (1), Photogrammetry (1) Computer Science (2) or Informatics (2) Statistical methods (1), Business Ethics (1) Number of modules shown in (parenthesis). Each module consist of about 90 contact hours (14 weeks) Modules with Geospatial content shown in red

6 BSc GeoInformatics 3 rd year Data Input (1), Spatial Analysis (1) Spatial Modelling (1), GEOBIA (1) Computer Science (4) or Informatics (4) 4 th year (Hons) Advanced Remote Sensing (RADAR/Hyperspectral) (1) GIS Management & Professional Practice (1) Spatial Modelling & Visualisation (1) Research Application (1)

7 BA degree programmes* BA Socio-Informatics (GeoInformatics) YR1: Geo-Environmental Science (25%), Maths, Stats, Informatics, Economics, Sociology YR2: GIT (50%), Informatics, Economics/Sociology, Ethics YR3: GIT (50%), Informatics BA Hons GIS GIS (incl. Management, Professionalization) Spatial Modelling (incl. Web-GIS, Models) Remote Sensing (Radar, Hyperspectral RS) GIT in social science research project (25%) * Not yet accredited by PLATO 30 credits each (4 x 8 credits)

8 Short courses Duration (5 weeks) 2 weeks theoretical preparation (reading) off-campus 1 week (5 days) on campus (lectures, demonstrations, hands-on tutorials, theory exam) 2 weeks assignments on/off-campus Accredited by SU (SAQA) 8 credits each Cost: R8000 (negotiable for large groups) How many courses? Intention was to offer all GIT modules as short courses Package as a post graduate diploma so that someone with a non-git degree can qualify and register with PLATO

9 Short course outline 4 core (common) courses 10 GIS courses 9 EO courses 312 Spatial analysis II Spatial analysis I Spatial data management Principles of spatial data 241 Map projections and coordinate systems Enterprise GIS GIS Management Spatial modelling I Data capture Advanced GEOBIA Web mapping Professional Practice Spatial modelling II GPS RADAR Image pre-processing 214 Introduction to GEOBIA Hyper-spectral Remote Sensing Introduction to GIS KEY: Photogrammetry 242 Digital Surface Models 16 credit graduate module (14 weeks) 8 credit short course (3 weeks) Image interpretation & transformation 211 Intro to Earth Observation

10 Dilemma More than 32 x 8 credit short courses will be needed for PLATO accreditation! 1 week x 32 = At least 1 year full time study Cost! (no state subsidy for short courses) Feasible? Not sure, need to understand demand better.

11 Current short courses Only three courses offered in 2014 Introduction to GIS (Mar/Aug/Oct) For beginners and managers Introduction to Earth Observation (May/Sep) For GIS practitioners GEOBIA (Earth Observation) (Nov) For Remote Sensing practitioners (or those who have completed Intro to EO) Check for schedule Can offer courses on demand depending on group size Spatial Analysis; Data Manipulation; Photogrammetry; Spatial Data Acquisition; Spatial Data Management

12 Intro to GIS course structure Day 1 Maps & Cartography GI Science GIS Software [Intro to ArcGIS] Day 2 Nature of Geographical Information [Data models] Map projections and coordinate systems [Map projections and coordinate systems] Day 3 Data input [Digitizing] [GPS] [Data editing] Day 4 Spatial and hybrid queries [Spatial queries] Data manipulation and spatial analysis [Spatial analysis] Day 5 Assignment briefing Theoretical exam Check for structures of courses

13 Stellenbosch University Campus Questions & Suggestions? Contact details: Adriaan van Niekerk

14 Land cover Critical for decision relating to urban and regional planning, agriculture, environmental management, water use and availability estimation, disaster mitigation Last proper land cover map produced for Western Cape was in 2000 Landsat-7, 2ha MMU, 45 classes Consortium of partners: Big variance in accuracy (average 66% accuracy, 0.57 Kappa); many inconsistencies Agriculture for Western Cape updated in 2013 (<10% of area) Great, but we urgently need a full update of all land covers in the Western Cape

15 Land cover map produced by CGA for NGI - 2.5m (10m) resolution (43 SPOT5 images, 16 LANDSAT) - Completed within 4 months (Dec-Mar 2014) - Overall accuracy 93% (0.9 Kappa) [9358 field samples] Will cost less than R4milion to do Western Cape With agricultural data we can produce a fantastic product Eastern Cape Dataset produced by CGA
