1– Overall Aims of Course



  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are tools for managing data about where features are (geographic coordinate data) and what they are like (attribute data), and for providing the ability to query, manipulate, and analyze those data.



  • Because GIS allows one to represent social and environmental data as a map, it has become an important analysis tool used across a variety of fields including; planning, architecture, engineering, public health, environmental science, economics, epidemiology, and business. GIS has become an important political tool allowing communities and regions to graphically tell their story.





  • GIS is a powerful tool, and this course is meant to introduce students to the basics. Because GIS can be applied to many research fields, this class is meant to give the student an understanding of its possibilities.
