Cognitive: Learning methods used for spatial and multimedia data management, and advanced topics in data base management.
Skills: After the course completion students will have a concrete view of the methods used for spatial and multimedia data management. Moreover, they will be able to apply indexing schemes (as well as other methods) in spatial and multimedia data. In addition, the assignments will help students to gain additional knowledge and solve practical problems.
