Description Students will use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques to acquire, adjust, extend, modify, integrate, analyze, map, and manage digital spatial data (both rasters and vectors) across space and time, using the standard ArcMap interface and extensions (especially 3D Analyst and Spatial Analyst) and customized toolboxes in ESRI’s ArcGIS suite of software. This course builds on concepts introduced in the Thinking Spatially (GEOS 207) and Cartography (GEOS 210) courses and applies them to physical, biological, and social data within a GIS.
