Advanced GIS

Winter 2015 quarter

Taught by

MES Faculty

Advanced GIS is a fast-paced course designed to teach graduate students to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for mapping, spatial data management, and spatial data analysis. Instruction is based on reading assignments, lectures, and weekly hands-on labs using ArcGIS 10.1. Evaluations are based on the quality of student-produced map and analysis products and two quizzes. No previous experience with GIS is required, but students should have experience with quantitative software and must be able to demonstrate a solid understanding of MS Windows file management. Students will be expected to use the software outside of class, and student versions of the software will be made available, but support is limited to college computers (note: software runs only under MS Windows, see requirements: ).
