Explores analytical capabilities of geographic information systems. Covers techniques to locate and to describe features and moves to advanced techniques based on higher-level spatial objects. Use the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension to analyze raster datasets in the lab.
Course learning outcomes
1. Analyze spatial data with geographic information systems (GIS) software tools.
2. Interpret spatial patterns with vector data using proximity and overlay techniques.
3. Model raster data to display spatial patterns.
