This topic develops cross-cutting concepts of aquaculture project development based on spatial analysis. Geographical Information Systems are used as an environment for linking biology and physiology, environment, resource use and development constraints into expert systems. Remote Sensing, Digital mapping, environmental profiling, and GPS are considered as data sources, as well as issues surrounding digital data quality and verification. Data processing and enhancement and use of Proxy data is developed in creating a spatial database. This topic will be of interest to those eager to develop their understanding of modelling, particularly those keen to develop a career in aquaculture planning and development.
