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!

Water Traces In The Phoenix Metropolitan Area

Diese Arbeit ist online verfügbar: Download


The idea for this thesis topic was presented by Professor Dr. Matthias Möller in November of 2007 during the UNIGIS study days in Salzburg. In several personal conversations the extent was discussed and reads as follows. The examination area, the metropolitan area to Phoenix (Arizona, U.S.) lies within the more than 300,000 square kilometers large Sonoran Desert. With more than 300 sunny days a year, this area belongs to an arid climate zone. The summer temperatures greater than 38 °C are not uncommon. During the period from about 300 before Christ until about 1500 AD Arizona was mainly inhabited by the Hohokam Indians. The survival and the development of this culture were only possible because of the use of complex water canals which were created and expanded by their inhabitants. The Master's Thesis will explore whether the influences of historical water use on today's urban water regimes in the region can be derived. For this two different data sources are used. On the one hand, remote sensing data in form from satellite images and on the other hand reconstructed historic canals which were evaluated by the Arizona State University (ASU), were used. For the work the last set of data was provided in ESRI Shape format. Remote sensing data from the satellites of the study area were provided for the years from 1973, 1985, 1995 and 2003. For this work the two GIS software products ERDAS Imagine 8.7 and ESRI ArcGIS 9.2 were used.
