B.Sc. and M.Sc. Theses

The student excursions to Namibia as well as cooperations with the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) as well as NGOs and provate nature reserves have triggered a series of B.Sc. and M.Sc. theses related to the research clusters of our department. These include land cover and land cover change analysis (LULCC), drought monitoring, hydrological analysis and analysis of urbanisation trends.

List of B.Sc. Theses:

  • A GIS-based Analysis of Spatial Disparities and Accessibility to Services - A case study of Windhoek, Namibia
  • GIS-based Analysis of Informal Settlement Development in Windhoek, Namibia
  • GIS-based Visualization and Spatial Analysis of Windhoek's Urban Development by means of High-resolution Remote Sensed Data
  • Analysis of Land Use and Land Cover Change within the Okavango-Omatako River Basin in Namibia
  • A Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Fires and their Effect on Biomass in the Kavango Region, Namibia
  • Watershed Delineation in the Kavango-Omatako Region (Namibia) using Digital Elevation Models – A comparative Analysis of TanDEM-X, SRTM, ALOS World 3D & ASTER GDEM
