Really great subject if you're interested in GIS (otherwise it is probably very dry). Good practical assessments (however they are mostly group assessments which can be a challenge). Gives you excellent, practical understanding of how to use a GIS and how they can be applied to real-world problems. Great lecturers too.

A great subject with very helpful and nice staff. There's a bit of a learning curve with GIS but it helps when you ask for help from your friends or group mates. The content is very applicable and useful for the job market. Marking for the assignments were surprisingly lenient. As long as you do everything in the criteria it's an easy high H2 or H1. The exam was a bit difficult as it really requires a good understanding of the content. You can't just rote learn the content as most questions were application questions.

Subject was organised very well, and teaching staff were very professional and approachable. The GIS component was hard to get my head around, but everyone in the class helped each other out. Staff are very lenient with marking. Final assignment is very complex, but if you get your head around the GIS program, you will be able to trial and error your way through. It does require quite a bit of work, but you are in a group so its good to share the workload evenly. Exam felt unfair based on the amount of work put into the assignments. However, it is only based on the first few lectures so not something to really stress about. Overall, really cool subject, especially for the maps that you create. Super rewarding and interesting.

This subject is awesome.. You will gain knowledge upon how GIS is being implemented in the current technological era, as well as its opportunity to be developed in the future. Make sure you have a good teamwork, I say scoring more than H2 mark is quite easy for this subject

This subject is GREAT!!! It's very easy to get a high score on the assignment. HOWEVER, YOU SHOULD NEVER COME TO THE LECTURE, since most of the time, you will only listen to the guest lecture. There was a lecture that had 4 guest lectures. So basically, if you take this subject, you just pay fees to attend regular seminar each week. But, if you just aim to get a high score, this subject might be worth a shot!!
