Natural Resources Information Systems part of Cutting Edge:GIS and Remote Sensing:Courses
Current trends in natural resources management such as ecosystem and landscape management in addition to traditional stand and forest data result in large data sets. Natural resources managers must be able to create, store, manage and query these large data sets. This course provides the basic knowledge enabling you, as natural resource professionals, to create and manage databases and to interact with management information specialists in large scale distributed database systems. Both spatial (geographic information systems) and non-spatial (aspatial) data systems will be covered. The perspective is that of a natural resource professional using data to create information that helps improve the efficiency and quality of resource management.
