GEOG 104: Geographic Information Science and Spatial Reasoning part of Cutting Edge:GIS and Remote Sensing:Courses
This course will introduce fundamental concepts of geographic information science (GIScience), including geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), cartography, remote sensing, and spatial statistics. Advanced geospatial application tools, such as Google Earth, Google Map, and the National Geographic Map Machine will be used to demonstrate these concepts. Students will learn how to use these geospatial technologies and tools in addressing human and environmental problems. Students will be able to organize geospatial data, visualize spatial patterns, and conduct basic spatial query and map overlay functions.
