- Maybe some lecture slids could be provides rather than just pictures from the book. »
- that guest lecture about modelling of the latest ice age was kind of not so good.»
- more presentation on GIS softwares, and it is assigned more marks, and more exercise on GIS softwares would be good. »
- One ArcGIS assignment like the one we did and another one where we can make an analysis on our own and not just follow steps in a manual.»
- More computer exercises in Mapinfo, but especially more in ArcGIS, to learn more about the programs.»
- Lectures. I did not got much there.»
- Way of evaluation, fairly more weighting should be given to practical exercises. »

16. Additional comments

- The excercise is good but easily to be forgotten.»
