Spring 2019

Fall 2018

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) represent a major advancement in computer handling of geographical data. These systems are used extensively throughout all levels of government, private industry, and academia to provide support for spatial decision making and problem-solving. Principles and methods of Geographic Information Systems are presented with an emphasis on modeling the Earth and abstracting geographical data, collection of geographical data using modern techniques such as GPS, mapping information, and analyzing patterns and spatial relationships. Practical experience with GIS is provided during the lab exercises using a state-of-the-art GIS. (Syllabus)

GEOG 105 The Digital Earth (Carolina Core ARP)

GEOG 105 is an introductory course that focuses on how the earth surface is visualized, explored, and analyzed in digital formats. It provides a systematic introduction of map-based analytical approaches to understanding the Earth environment and human society. The topics cover the basics of cartography (map making and reading), aerial photography and satellite image interpretation, geographic information systems (GIS), and map-based reasoning and communication of spatial data. Through lectures and computer/field exercises, students will learn fundamental concepts of digital geographic data to understand vast quantities of geographic information in our ever-changing world. Students will be exposed to leading edge trends in mapping technology – with examples from everyday life like web-based maps and smartphone APPs – as their practical experiences. (Syllabus)
