Renewal of registration

  1. Subject to exceptions approved by the Dean, on the recommendation of the head of department, and in the case of distance education where the Dean formulates the stipulations that will apply, a student may not sit for an examination for the honours degree more than twice in the same module.
  2. A student for an honours degree must complete his or her study, in the case of full-time students, within two years and, in the case of after-hours students, within three years of first registering for the degree and, in the case of distance education students, within the period stipulated by the Dean. Under special circumstances, the Dean, on the recommendation of the head of department, may give approval for a limited extension of this period.

In calculating marks, General Regulation G.12.2 applies.

Apart from the prescribed coursework, a research project is an integral part of the study.

  • Module-inhoud:

    Hierdie module verskaf ‘n oorsig van hoe Geografiese Inligting oor die internet en intranet versprei kan word. Dit sal aantoon hoe GIS-funksionaliteit aan ‘n wye reeks netwerkgebaseerde toepassings in besighede, die staat, onderwys, ens. verskaf kan word. Studente sal leer hoe om webgebaseerde kaarte te ontwikkel deur gebruik te maak van sagteware wat tans beskikbaar is ten einde die potensiaal van GIS in die Internet-omgewing te verwesenlik.

    This module covers the major themes of spatial databases with application to geographic information systems (GIS), i.e. systems concerning data with an implicit or explicit reference to a location relative to the earth. Topics covered include an introduction to spatial databases and spatial data management systems, representation of geographic data, spatial data modelling, computational geometry, spatial data indexing, query processing and spatial data standards. For Computer Science students the module is an introduction to the ever increasing application field of geographics information systems (GIS), and for Geoinformatics students the module provides insight into the Computer Science foundations of the field.
