BIOL 200 - Computer Utilization in Biological Research

Semester Hours: 3

Lectures and laboratory experiences concerning the use of Geographic Information Systems in a multidisciplinary context, with specific applications in natural sciences (e.g., biology, geology) and applied sciences (e.g., engineering). Hands-on laboratory exercises with current software to provide practical experience in editing, integration, geocoding, display and analysis of spatial and non-spatial data through multilayered maps using data from various sources. Emphasis will be given to case studies such as remote sensing, mapping important resources, home range analysis, and vegetation patterns for land use planning, environmental impact studies, asset management, and transportation engineering. Students will be expected to work on an independent project, analyzing a substantial data set relevant to the theory and techniques covered in class.
