Introduction to GIS (Geog 110/GIS 110)

GIS is an interdisciplinary field of study closely linked with geography, cartography, spatial analysis, and information management.

This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and to provide hands-on training with one of the most widely used GIS software packages, ArcGIS Desktop by ESRI - Environmental Systems Research Institute.

The goal of the class is to develop the student's ability to formulate geographic questions, design step-by-step analyses, evaluate the processes and results, and to create and present a polished, informative cartographic product.

Note: GIS 110 is cross listed as GEOG 110.  Credit is given in either area, but not both.

Intermediate GIS (Geog 211/GIS 211)

Intermediate GIS prepares students for advanced geographic analysis.  Within the framework of class projects and lab exercises, students will integrate geographic and spatial concepts, data management and analysis, and cartographic design using a leading software package (ArcGIS).  Students will develop a deeper understanding of GIS concepts and theory, and greater proficiency in software applications.

Laboratory exercises will allow students of various disciplines to explore the use of GIS in their fields.  This course is also applicable to those already in the GIS field seeking additional skills. 

Note: GIS 211 is cross listed as GEOG 211.  Credit is given in either area, but not both.
