Utilization of and knowledge about programming languages used in development of, and communication with, today's GIS-software and application environments is of utter importance for students who want to direct their studies towards these specializations.

Effectuation of a project always requires searching for and obtaining special knowledge and information. In this project course that can be achieved by participating in and perform some programming laboratory practical within a distance course in Python programming in GIS. This contains lectures as well as other distance learning resources. The project, which runs in parallel, is some GIT related application. For this part the teaching consists of some project meetings with discussion and supervision.

The projects results and experiences are reported both in written and oral form.
