The goal of this course is to introduce the students to the basics of GIS. Specific
features of the course include: coverage of

basic geographic, cartographic, and GIS
concepts. Topics include: computer representation of physical, political, statistical,
and social aspects of space using vector
-
based maps, graphic design principles for
using shape, hue, size, and patterns in mappi
ng, attribute
-
based and graphic feature
-
based queries for spatial analysis. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) allow
individuals and organizations to pose, explore and answer a variety of public
-

and
private
-
sector questions using spatial data.
