“GIS TERRAIN ANALYSIS FOR HYDRO-GEOMORPHIC APPLICATIONS”

Havana, Cuba, December, 5th-9th , 2011

Agrarian University of Havana, Havana Province, Cuba, organizes the 4th edition of GIS TERRAIN ANALYSIS FOR HYDRO-GEOMORPHIC APPLICATIONS,from 5th to 9th, December, 2011.

 With the patronage of:

Description:
The short course introduces participants to the understanding and application of GIS-based terrain analysis principles and tools within hydrologic and geomorphic applications. State-of-the art as well as standard GIS tools are taught during theoretical morning lectures and applied during afternoon labs during the first 4 days, while in the last day participants will develop and present results of their own projects. GIS terrain analysis tools developed by authors together with lecture-lab material will be distributed to participants on a CD.
