GIS is a vibrant and pervasive technology for investigating and understanding societal, environmental and ecological problems (and more) from a spatial perspective. This course introduces students to GIS concepts, such as posing spatial questions, finding and using GIS data, cartographic literacy and multi-step spatial problem solving. Students will learn how to acquire, map and analyze spatial data (in raster and vector forms) in order to assess a variety of questions, and will learn to communicate results in spatially empowered decision making.
