The principal focus of this course is to give an introduction to geographic information systems (GIS) along with extensive hands-on experience with the GIS software ESRI ArcGIS 9.x. Topics 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. Applications of GIS locally and globally will also be discussed through case studies.
