ENVS 375

Intro to Geospat. Tech. w/lab

This class combines both theoretical coverage and hands-on lab work, to provide an introduction to geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS) and remote sensing science. Lab activities will utilize both widely available freeware and ArcGIS, providing an introduction to the GIS industry standard software. Course and lab examples and applications will be drawn from many fields across environmental science disciplines and thus stimulate spatial thinking as it relates to environmental issues. Students will gain sufficient knowledge of geospatial technologies and a diverse array of application areas enabling them to integrate spatial thinking and analysis into their research and careers /or pursue further training in GIS, GPS or remote sensing.
