Introduction to GIS part of Cutting Edge:GIS and Remote Sensing:Courses
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is the use of computers to manage, display and analyze spatial or geographical information. This course will introduce the basic concepts, functions, and applications of GIS. We will also discuss maps, data sources and management, and geographic techniques, including global positioning systems (GPS), aerial photography, and satellite imagery. Through a series of exercises using ArcView software students will explore the analytical functions of GIS. Each student will develop a GIS project with data appropriate to his/her area of interest.
