Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can play a key role in helping scientists, decision-makers, and the public develop collaborative solutions to real-world problems. GIS mapping tools have become imperative for many fields, such as epidemiology, veterinary science, urban planning and environmental assessment. The Applied Geographical Information Systems short course is an introduction to a range of geospatial techniques used in the analysis of spatial data. Practical case studies are employed to help you confront real world problems and design a solution using GIS. The software package ArcGIS is used to visualise, explore, analyse and map the solution.

This introductory remote sensing course provides an introduction to the physical principles of satellite remote sensing, and basic remote sensor data processing. In particular, this includes: (i) examining the basic physics of electromagnetic (EM) radiation and the complex interactions of radiation with the atmosphere and surface, (ii) examining the characteristics of the EM radiation (spectral signatures) across regions of the EM spectrum for various surface targets, (iii) reviewing the main resolutions of a sensor system, types of sensors (passive and active), remote sensing platforms (ground-based, airborne and spaceborne) and satellite remote sensing missions, (iv) basis for interpretation of remote sensing images, (v) hands-on basic remote sensor data processing i.e. performing image corrections for common sources of error in satellite imagery, and performing image enhancement and image classification in-order to generate thematic information. In particular, the classification of images will entail applying selected vegetation indices, supervised pixel- and supervised object-based classification techniques to the provided image data sets; followed by verification of classification results by constructing an error assessment matrix. Furthermore course will also cover various online remote sensor data archives where imagery of varying resolution characteristics can be obtained free of charge.

MyFuture 4.0 will showcase digital skills and careers, highlighting study directions, training and career opportunities and the future employers of choice. This is event fills a major information gap for our next generation. The event had barely been launched when schools notified us that they would bus 25,000 learners to attend the event. There is a huge demand for information about digital careers and future-proof jobs within the Fourth Industrial Revolution. With this massive response from school, learners and parents, MyFuture 4.0 will be a unique event in that will not only answer questions for the next generation workforce – it will also present an ideal opportunity for organisations to engage with this new generation of workers and consumers.
