gis.Science: Special Issue on Master of Science “Applied Geoinformatics” at Salzburg University

A special issue of gis.Science on the “Applied Geoinformatics” master programme  at the University of Salzburg is now available – presenting some master theses on key issues in the field of GI such as

- modelling of homogenous regions for avalanche risk assessment

- quanitifying CO2 emissions through extended Floating Car Data

- analyzing the suitability of pseudo 3D maps for use in tourism

Final avalanche risk assessment-zones,
visualized by the weighted mean value,
Salzburg, Austria
The approach that is common in all presented theses is to build on conceptual foundations and transfer those into application-oriented research contexts. This transfer is a core feature of the study programme with strong international orientation and English as language of instruction. It started in 2002 as a traditional residential Geoinformatics study programme, following the success of UNIGIS distance learning programmes.
