GEOG 170 - Advanced Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used to encode, store, analyze, and report spatial data. This advanced course expands the GIS foundations, concepts, and application techniques already acquired in the introductory and intermediate GIS courses (GEOG 060  and GEOG 160 ). It mainly focuses upon the professional applications of GIS technology, such as project management, geodatabase creation, advanced cartography, and data analysis. The student is expected to become proficient in applying GIS to the analysis of problems in a wide array of fields. The course is interdisciplinary; students may choose projects related to their area of interest (e.g., geography, sustainability, ecology, geology, history, etc.).

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
