Currently, the GIT (Geospatial Information Technologies) have become an irreplaceable tool for obtaining and analysing spatio-temporal and multi-scale information that constitutes a high added value for the improvement of decision-making in areas such as environmental management and integrated land planning. The disciplines included in this summer course, i.e. Physical Geography, Remote Sensing and Information and Territorial Planning, offer a set of tools and technologies very valuable for monitoring, at multiple scales and with great precision, the dynamics of what happens in our "Digital Earth".
