This course provides an introduction to geographic information systems (GIS) for students in the natural and social sciences. Students apply concepts and techniques of geographic information science as they view, manipulate, analyze and disseminate geographic data. Topics covered include vector and raster data models, database query, geoprocessing, geocoding, and cartographic techniques. Students conduct an in-depth individual research project that uses GIS techniques to address a particular question or problem.
