A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. GIS have become a tool with widespread use in developmental applications. The power of a GIS can have a positive influence in community based planning and scientific decision making for developmental activities.
In this class, you will learn about basic GIS concepts including spatial data structures, data sources and transfer methods, projections and coordinate systems, georeferencing, metadata, supporting software, global positioning systems, the integration of remote sensing and GIS, as well as fundamental spatial analysis techniques such as overlay, extraction, and interpolation. Concepts presented in lecture will be put into practice through hands-on laboratory exercises utilizing the GIS software product ArcGIS and AutoCAD Map.
