GIS: Presentation, Analysis and Problem-Solving (GEOG 362)
This course introduces you to the systems, science, and study of geographic information systems (GIS). You will be introduced to what gives GIS its enduring importance including its core principles, its applications, its unique analysis methods, and the host of practices and dilemmas that often accompany the use and communication of geographic information.
It is not just GIS software itself that allows you to solve problems and make better decisions. It is the ability to understand and apply best practices about using GIS through courses like this one that allows you to solve problems and make better decisions. Applications include describing patterns in the spread of disease and quality of medical treatment, creating global atlases of the world's threatened species and habitat change, supporting the logistics of emergency services in response to a natural or human-made disaster, decreasing fleet costs through efficient vehicle routing, or developing a geographically-targeted marketing scheme to find more donors and volunteers for a non-profit.
