Great course. It helps I have a background in both Data Science and Geographic Information Science, but still found it equally interesting and challenging! I would highly recommend this course.
very insightful and impacting session laced with applicable examples and contemporary issues. Thank you coursera. Thank you Yonsei University.

This course did not meet my expectations. I was expecting that this course would be heavy on hands-on applications of the software used in each discipline of spatial data science. I did not, so I still have to find my own way to learn these open-source software programs. The course, however, explains the four disciplines extensively. It would have been better if the instructor used real-world applications simultaneously with each methodology described so that we can grasp the principles more quickly and intuitively.

The theory was very interesting and you learn a lot about spatial data science, as well as something very basic about the proposed architecture. But it takes a lot of practice, the student wants to test and run the practices on their computer (or why name Open Source software?)

I really want to believe that the lecturer has an in depth knowledge of the topic but as many others pointed out before: The course is providing no practical content at all and from an international academic researcher with multiple years working experience in native English speaking countries I would expect a clear and understandable communication. This was unfortunately not the case. It was very hard to follow the lectures that are "purely read from the slides". Quizzes became indeed hard because of a certain language barriers. Terminologies of teaching (e.g. "In this course you learned [...]" or "In the past course you studied [...]") are a bit misleading into the perception of an applicable understanding of the concepts. But knowledge does not equal understanding. To have "studied" or "learned" a topic one needs to get lectures that are didactically formulated well and maybe provide hands-on experience with the topic. At least giving a small assignment and trying around with QGIS would have provided some value.
I also agree with others that this course should be updated and rerecorded with a speaker that is more comfortable with spoken English. I'm sure Yonsei University can do this!
