Unterrichts-/ Lehrsprachen


- Introduction (GIS in riverscape planning, GIS data sources in Austria/EU, data aquisition, eg.)
- GIS for environmental monitoring in riverscapes (Concepts/tasks in monitoring, data availability, shortcomings, examples, GIS instruments and tools)
- GIS application in riverine nature conservation and river restoration (concepts/tasks, data availability, shortcomings, examples, GIS tools)
- Rivers as network (network geometry, network analyses tools)
- GIS and modelling (data processing, environmental data, human pressures, land use,...) on different scales (that can be further used for e.g. the modelling of reference conditions, prediction of fish assemblage under undisturbed conditions...)

Inhaltliche Voraussetzungen (erwartete Kenntnisse)

autonomous working with QGIS!!!!
--> basic GIS knowledge (Introductory course); e.g. structure of GIS data, data import, editing, coordinate systems, transformations


After successful completion of this module, participants will be able to:
- Examine potential data sources for GIS analyses in aquatic ecology (e.g. National Water Management Plan)
- Identify GIS tools that are relevant for the analyses of riverine landscapes (e.g. Linear referencing tools)
- Apply GIS tools that are suitable for monitoring and planning of riverine ecosystems (e.g. buffer analysis)
- Structure and generate workflows in GIS to describe a specific analysis in detail
- Visualise the results of GIS analyses in an appropriate way (e.g., by tables, figures and maps)
- Presentation of results in written and oral form according to the guideline of good scientific practice
- Analyse a riverine landscape based on spatial data and GIS tools
