GIS Students head for the Field

Earth Observation and Spatial Analysis

Students from our world-leading Master’s programme in GIS are currently in Highland Perthshire undertaking project work.  34 students are resident at Kindrogan Field Centre with staff members Bruce Gittings, Nick Hulton, William Mackaness, Alasdair MacArthur, Owen Macdonald and Dimitrios Michelakis, together with Honorary Fellow Robin McLaren and field assistant Blair Wereshchuk, all members of the GIS and remote sensing team in the School of GeoScienceUAVs in Edinburgh. The students are undertaking a range of projects from mapping using our two new UAVs, to hydro-power potential, archaeology and geomorphology, all using GIS and remote sensing methods. In an interesting historical connection, the Kindrogan Field Centre was extended through the initiative of the Late Professor J. Terry Coppock, Secretary of the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland, but also Professor of Geography at the University of Edinburgh and Founding Editor of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science.
