Prerequisites
General Prerequisites
There is no list of prerequisite courses in the strict sense. Students should master topics related to Databases, Programming with Java and C++ and Data Mining or Machine Learning.
Learning Outcomes
After the course completion students will have a concrete view of the methods used for spatial and multimedia data mamagement. Moreover, they will be able to apply indexing schemes (as well as other methods) in multimedia data. In addition, the assignments will help students to gain additionan knowledge and solve practical problems.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Generate new research ideas
