Introduces students to the use of a geographic information system (GIS), and explores the practical application of GIS to support geographic inquiry, analysis, and decision making. Topics include spatial data collection, data accuracy and uncertainty, cartographic principles and data visualization, geographic analysis, and legal, economic, and ethical issues associated with the use of a GIS. Students gain hands-on experience with a leading commercial GIS software package. Case studies from geology, environmental science, urban planning, architecture, social studies, and engineering are investigated.

This course introduces the concepts and components of a geographic information system (GIS). It also teaches the essential skills of spatial data management, analysis, and visualization through the use of the ArcGIS software package. Upon completion of this course, students understand the fundamental concepts of a GIS including spatial data models, spatial analysis, and cartographic principles. They also gain hands-on training in spatial data collection, editing, transformation, and mapping, as well as spatial analysis operations such as location-based query, address geocoding, terrain and watershed analysis, spatial interpolation, best site selection, least cost path delineation, and a number of other GIS modeling techniques. GIS technology has broad applications in the natural and social sciences, humanities, environmental studies, engineering, and management. Examples include wildlife habitat study, urban and regional planning, contagious disease monitoring, agriculture an... [Read More]

Students will be exposed to GIS applications focusing on water resources. They will assess online data sources, learn how to download and pre-process digital data, and analyze water information. Students will learn through demonstrations, lectures, discussion sessions and hands-on labs. Students will demonstrate their understanding of class concepts through the development of a project that will include developing a GIS database and conducting analysis from techniques learned in class.
GIS technology for spatial design/analysis, applications in facilities management, urban infrastructure, water resources, environmental engineering.
Integration of GPS and GIS in the planning and decision making process, application to case study.
Phone No.: 312-996-7000
Aims to promote a critical understanding of the basic practices and techniques associated with GIS applications in the environmental and public health areas.
Phone No.: 1.877.668.7727
Introduces the basic concepts associated with publishing spatial data and serving maps on the Internet. Examines the use of Internet mapping software, as well as the basics of designing and operating an effective map publishing and customization environment.
Examines strategies for successful GIS management and implementation in an organizational context. Investigates four primary issues: implementation planning, data management, data and technology assessment, and organizational setting.
Provides an in-depth introduction to the customization of Esri ArcGIS using Python. The focus is on providing a fundamental understanding of how Python is integrated into ArcGIS 10. Students have an opportunity to gain a working knowledge of how to apply Python in ArcMap. Weekly assignments are deigned to provide hands-on experience with ArcGIS, Modelbuilder, Python, geoprocessing, and ArcPy. ESRI Virtual Campus classes are used to enhance the materials being explored in the text and exercises.
Explores the practical application of GIS to support geographic inquiry and decision making. Focuses on technical knowledge of the common tasks that a GIS analyst faces in applying GIS to a variety of spatial problems. Offers students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with a leading commercial GIS software package.

provides students with a learning experience about GIS methods in the context of several pervasive decision support contexts involving urban-regional sustainability management settings. Two significant categories characterize the decision support contexts: topics and decision situations. Three inter-related topics â€?land use, transportation and water resources â€?are fundamental to how people upgrade and/or degrade the quality of life in communities, each having a significant influence on the natural environment. Three pervasive decision situations â€?planning, improvement programming and project implementation â€?are ways that communities attempt to address quality of life changes in the long, medium and short terms. Students work with GIS methods in both off-the-shelf commercial and customized software to address various decision support scenarios that characterize those nine contexts (of three topics by three decision situations). Students gain exposure to group-based decisio... [Read More]
