GIS Course for Economists [14 January 2005]
The PREM programme fully acknowledges the relevance of GIS for environmental economist but at the same time recognises the fact that economist have limited opportunity to become acquainted with GIS techniques. Moreover, spatial environmental economics is not without problems as GIS requires extensive information on environmental values and the people that apply GIS need to have solid knowledge on GIS (e.g. software, data, compatibility with economic sciences). Therefore, PREM provides a tailor-made GIS course for environmental economists in the PREM programme. The aim of the course is not to train the participants as full-fledged GIS practitioners but to teach enough about GIS to understand the capabilities of this spatial tool in relation to your own research.
