UNIGIS Abschlussarbeiten

Der krönende Abschluss eines UNIGIS MSc Studiums ist sicherlich die Master Thesis. Mit ihr belegen unsere MSc-AbsolventInnen, dass sie den akademischen Grad "Master of Science (Geographical Information Science & Systems)" zu Recht führen.  Im UNIGIS professional Studiengang muss keine Abschlussarbeit verfasst werden. Dennoch nehmen einige Studierende die Möglichkeit war, ein Geoinformatikprojekt durchzuführen und entsprechend zu dokumentieren.

Sie sind auf der Suche nach aktueller Literatur zu Geoinformatik-Themen?
Hier finden sie die mitunter preisgekrönten Abschlussarbeiten unserer AbsolventInnen!

Forestry and Areas of Ecological Importance in Norway

Diese Arbeit ist online verfügbar: Download

Nowadays certification is an important marketing issue for forestry and in Norway the revised version of the national scheme, the Living Forests Standard, has brought a lot of attention to forestry and how it attends to biodiversity and sustainability. One aspect of the Living Forests Standard (LS) is setting aside at least 5 % as Areas of Ecological Importance (AEI) of the productive forest. According to the requirements of the standard logging in these areas is restricted to either no logging or to nurturing intervention. The Norwegian Forest Owners Association, as a major stake holder for private small-scale forest owners in Norway, assumes that with today’s requirements sections of the LS the necessary amount of area is already set aside. In order to prepare statistical data to test this assumption the available geodata on municipality level will be analyzed. The aim is to find out for which requirement sections the actual amount of area set aside can be extracted or created from existing geodata. It is expected to be able to calculate the area for demanded buffer zones to water, mire and cultivated landscape. Additionally, there is a dataset on Administratively protected areas and data on Key habitat appraisals in forests available as geodata. On the basis of these assumptions it is expected that a new dataset on AEI can be created that is sufficient to document the requirement on area set aside by the LS. A conceptual model will be established based on the analysis of the requirement sections and on the geodata depending on their level of tandardization. This model is the approach to generalize the possibility of documenting AEI for other municipalities in Norway.
