Credits: 3

Applied skills in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are required for many entry-level careers in public and private sector emergency management, planning, engineering, public health, community development and naturalresource management. This course is an introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for undergraduate students. This course has three objectives: (1) to familiarize students with the application of GIS software and provide experience working with common sources of spatial data and analysis techniques. (2) To produce intelligent consumers of spatial information - to recognize the perils of misrepresenting spatial data and the realworld implications of bad maps. (3) To prepare students for a job market that demands GIS skills and spatial literacy.
