Course Memo

The emergence of new data sources is transforming the role of the data analyst from one who simply reports information to one who is charged with making sense of the available data and distilling from it the salient aspects for the given audience. In this course, students will examine the concepts of Geospatial data analysis, and how Geospatial component influences any activity and operation on the Earth. The course provides introduction to the fundamentals of Geospatial Technology, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), cartography, GPS and Remote Sensing, and spatial analysis through a series of lectures and hands-on computer-based exercises. It also teaches the essential skills of operating a functional GIS through the use of ArcGIS software package.
