Learning Zone

Quality courses and tutorials developed by commercial companies and members of the academic community. Developed to enhance knowledge of spatial data, facilitating applications for research and to support teaching and learning.

The courses for HE and FE are broken down into discrete units, with units being constucted by several topics. Units contain exercises and reflective questions to test ability and understanding.

How to Access Learning Materials

The Learning Zone can be accessed from the prospective of a Student/Researcher through the Open Educational Resources(open to all) and Protected Educational Resources (UK academic registered users) or from the prospective of a Teacher/Lecturer through the Course Planner.
