|Title: ||GIS 222-01, Geographic Information Systems, Spring 2005|
|Authors: ||Kesler, David H.|
|Date Issued: ||12-Jan-2005|
|Abstract: ||The main objective of this one-hour course is to show you the multiple uses of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to answer questions from a variety of disciplines. The team-teaching of this course by faculty from seven different departments demonstrates this technology’s diverse utility.
Another objective of this course is to give you hands-on experience with ArcGIS, the most widely used GIS application. You will be expected to complete projects (see above) and to generate a GIS project in which you answer a question of your making and present this to the class. Through this activity you will gain a deeper understanding of spatial analysis in answering questions about the world in which you live.
We also hope that you will
1.) Gain a greater appreciation for geography and spatial thinking;
2.) Enhance critical thinking and problem solving skills; and
3.) Gain a broader understanding of geographic information systems as a field of inquiry.|
