GIS and Decision Support

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

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 ?land use, transportation and water resources ?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 ?planning, improvement programming and project implementation ?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]

GIS Programming

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

In Geography 565 students receive hands-on experience with the Python programming language, which is applicable to GIS database work, particularly related to extending current commercial GIS such as ArcGIS. Students learn the basics of geoprocessing using command line, dialog box, ModelBuilder and Python scripting interfaces to interact with geospatial databases. Students develop Python programming/scripting skills fundamental to advanced GIS data manipulation based on previous work with data management course work. Assignments are conducted as team work, with students playing analysis and programmer roles to develop programming projects.

GIS Mapping

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

provides students with an opportunity to learn and use concepts, techniques and software tools that are part of geographic information systems (GIS). GIS brings together geovisualization technology, data management technology and geospatial analysis technology to enable people to develop geospatial databases, analyze those databases and depict them in the form of 2D and 3D map displays. Students apply principles of map design in lab assignments for different types of maps depicting sustainability ?social, economic and environmental ?topics at geographic scales from global to local. Students practice critical thinking skills during geographic information representation and use GIS mapping software.

GIS Data Management

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

exposes students to geospatial database management software ?particularly solutions provided by Environmental Systems Research Institute ?including personal geodatabase and enterprise geodatabase management solutions. Case studies in database management provide students with hands-on experience using a variety of data types and sizes of databases. Issues addressing data sources and data quality inform students about the benefits and drawbacks of transforming data into information. Implications of managing small, medium, and large databases are explored.

GIS (Master Degree)

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

GIS in Telecommunications

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

Telecommunications is a thriving technology and business, accounting for a significant percentage of technical advances and revenue around the globe. GIS has emerged as a crucial tool in the telecommunications field for maintaining existing entities, planning for additional ones, and for gaining an advantage in this very competitive marketplace. The use of GIS in the telecom industry continues to grow because GIS technology accommodates the many CAD programs and drawings representing plant and transmission towers/coverage as well as the geographic representations of those items. Only a few years ago, introducing GIS into a telecom business required significant cash outlay, but through less expensive hardware and more user-friendly software, now even a modest CLEC can implement an effective GIS.
This course exposes students to the various applications and uses for GIS in the telecom arena by breaking down the miscellaneous telecom requirements into GIS components and tech... [Read More]
