The lecture is primarily focused on computer processing of spatially related information. For the students of natural science, the lecture sums up the introductory course that is extended by other optional lectures, exercises and seminars. Presentations of individual aspects of data processing are based on the ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) guidebooks. The lecture contains computer presentations of selected exercises, which are consecutively processed by students in the framework of exercises.
