GEOG 160 - Intermediate Geographic Information Systems
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used to encode, store, analyze, and report spatial data. This multimedia course expands the GIS foundations, concepts, and application techniques already acquired in the introductory course (GEOG 060 - Introduction to Geographic Information Systems and Digital Maps). It mainly focuses upon the professional applications of the GIS technology as well as the understanding of more advanced spatial analysis functions such as geocoding, classification, statistical surfaces, overlay and network analysis. The student is expected to become proficient in applying GIS for the analysis of problems in a wide array of fields.
