Course Outline Course Outline 
Description This course covers the analysis of three dimensional physical and/or social information across landscapes, including dynamic interactions among spatial variables and how they change with time. Students will learn to think spatially at different time and spatial scales, understand spatial terms (e.g., proximity, shape, density, position, adjacency, gradient, and others), translate 3D features from the real world to 2D features on maps, and make inferences about causation based on observed spatial correlations.
