This CAS aims at providing attendees with a good understanding and practical skills on the various open source geographic and environmental tools together with approaches to tackle environmental challenges and sustainability.

The objectives of this course are:

  • to give double competencies to professionals and students in geomatics and environmental fields
  • to acquire knowledge on a set of tools linked to Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI), Web mapping (e.g. Geoserver, GeoNode, Geonetwork, MapX) and programming (e.g. Python for geoprocessing, R for geostatistics)
  • to acquire specific knowledge on tools available to assess biodiversity, ecosystem services and water resources


This programme is made of two modules corresponding to 10 ETCS credits:

1) A first remote module for discovery or scientific knowledge consolidation of environmental geomatics that will be proposed as a MOOC on ecosystem services (to be completed in May-June 2019)
2) A second module in two parts:

2a) A first part in presence as a block course organized as a summer school from 17 to 28 June 2019; all the teachings are mandatory
2b) A second part as an integrative work of end of studies, allowing each participant to tackle a professional issue based on knowledge acquired during the teachings

This solution should allow both professionals and students to best organize themselves to fit this programme in their schedule
