ITSC 3702 - Introduction to Geographical Information Systems

Credits: 3

Applied skills in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are required for many entry-level careers in public and private sector planning, engineering, public health, community development and natural-resource 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 IS 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 real-world implications of bad maps (3) to prepare students for a job marker that demands IS skills and spatial literacy.
