Starting from theoretical reflections, empiric assessments and case studies, the training objective is to develop interpretive models and related techniques of quantitative and qualitative analysis from which research can be conducted and analysis that restores the description, interpretation and effective evaluation of the different dimensions of a territory: socio-demographic, morphological, ecological, organizational, and possible development trajectories.
The teaching will focus on laboratory activities through computers that allow the use of software such as GIS, QGIS and ArcMap.
The course aims to focus on the complex interactions that are established between society and the environment (with particular references to rural contexts) through the acquisition of skills for the processing of digital cartography using software such as GIS, QGIS, and ArcMap.
