Introduction to Geographic Information System (GIS) along with extensive hands-on experience with the ESRI ArcGIS software. Topics in this course include data formats and sources; map design and visualization techniques; map projection, metadata, basic spatial analysis techniques, and web-GIS applications. In weekly lab sessions, students will also learn how to work with ArcMap to visualize geographic data, create maps, geocoding, query a GIS database, and perform spatial analysis using common analysis tools. During final weeks of the semester, students will apply their acquired techniques to solve geographic problems using a systematic approach to specific projects. Application of GIS, locally and globally, will also be discussed through case studies.
