GIS 102 Applications of Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are powerful tools that allow the user to study the relationship among data that can be presented spatially, such as on a map. GIS allows the user to create dynamic electronic maps that can be modified at the user's will to present desired data. Students use the concepts learned in ENV 30 and apply them to projects that will help them gain hands-on experience in the use of ArcGIS software. Students also choose a project where they demonstrate their ability to use GIS to analyze data, create a map, add features to a map, and create a high-quality layout for the presentation of a class project.
