Associate Professor Jonathan Rhodes teaches the following subjects:
Landscape Ecology – CONS3017/6017 (Semester 1)
This course explores the relationship between spatial patterns and processes in an ecological context through understanding of the landscape mosaic and landscape elements, how these are affected by natural & human environmental change, & in the context of conservation management.
Geographical Information Systems - GEOM2001/7005 (Semester 1)
This course provides students with a foundation in the science and technology of geographical information systems (GIS). GIS science focuses on ways to describe and represent geographical phenomena and explain geographical patterns and processes. GIS technology focuses on data modelling, databases, map visualisation and web applications. The course provides GIS skills that can be applied in a wide range of areas, including ecology, conservation science, environmental management, planning, geography, and the earth sciences and provides laboratory sessions and a field trip for students to apply GIS to solve practical real-world problems.
Advanced Geographical Information Systems - GEOM3002/7002 (Semester 2)
This course develops skills and a deeper understanding to conduct detailed analysis in GIS using basic statistical methods and spatial analysis. Students learn to analyse spatial patterns and relate these to processes in the natural environment and human spatial behaviour. Students also gain knowledge and skills to develop geoprocessing models and for making decisions related to planning and management.
