Spatial Knowledge and Transfer (SKAT)

Banner AGI

Z_GIS‘ Spatial Knowledge and Transfer division is built on the combination of domain competence and application experience in a range of areas, like modeling mobility in networks, managing safety for major events as well as managing protected areas, developing advanced classification and visualisation methods, or individual-based simulation of ecological dynamics.

This broad-based expertise is the foundation for developing and managing Z_GIS’ postgraduate continuing education programmes, UNIGIS MSc and UNIGIS professional. Offered in German and English language, these distance learning qualifications are built on 20 years of experience and are recognized world leading and setting the standards for professional education.

The track record from these full academic programmes is leveraged by contributing to European (and other) curriculum development and institution building initiatives, supported by Tempus, Erasmus and related programmes. Within shorter timeframes, international capacity building is facilitated as short intensive programmes and teacher training workshops, with a focus on Central and S/E Asia.

The division connects professional networks and non-professional communities within the GI Society, aiming at heightening awareness and implementation of spatial thinking and spatial solutions in everyday life. We develop and provide concepts and solutions for applications of GI Systems in the domains of mobility and safety, and contribute to the general education of the wider public through both secondary and postsecondary education and in-service training following the ‘spatial citizenship’ paradigm.

We address a range of fields across research and communication: network-based models and applications of GI Science like mobility and safety, investigation into various dimensions of GI Society (spatial citizenship) defining educational needs, development and implementation of learning modules for non-professionals like students in secondary education and (in-service) teachers as well as the general public, andreaching out via science and industry related platforms of communication and networking, i.e. conferences (www.agit.at / www.gi-forum.org) and related p.r. and dissemination activities.
