Capacity Building Projects

Capacity Development is one of the major strengths of the Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS and this is an ongoing process. This website functions as an outreach platform for the international cooperation partners collaborating in capacity buliding activities with Z_GIS. These acitivites are co-funded by various local, regional, national and international organisations.

Z_GIS is engaged in enhancing the competences in Geographical Information Science and Systems in collaboration with the international cooperation partners worldwide.

Through 'GIScience Competence' activities, we focus on:
  • enhancing the understanding of Spatial Concepts following interdisciplinary approach
  • integrating advanced Spatial Methods across the disciplines, and
  • imparting practical 'hands-on training' in using commercial GIS-tools / software in a variety of application areas.
