|Subject Overview:||The Spatial Information Research Project is a 50-point individual research project under academic supervision. Reflecting the interdisciplinary character of the course, the student must find two supervisors; one from Geomatics. The project will culminate in a thesis and a poster presentation. Furthermore, pending the approval of both of their supervisors, students can stretch the research project over two consecutive semesters, for example by combining this Spatial Information Research Project A (12.5 points) with a Spatial Information Research Project B (37.5 points). This avenue shall particularly facilitate some flexibility in the choice of electives that are offered in particular semesters only, however, the approval is completely at the discretion of the supervisors. A project stretched over two semesters is still assessed as a whole at the end of the second component. The thesis and poster presentation have to cover the whole project.|
