GIS is more than just mapping: it supports key decisions about wildlife habitat, renewable energy, human health, climate change, sustainable cities, and more.

In this course you will learn the basic concepts and functions of GIS – data capture, editing, processing, and display. You will use it both for analysis  – to discover trends and outliers in your data – as well as for presenting data visually to deliver actionable insights. You will collect data in the field and collaborate with other classes to identify research questions.
