ENVSC 305 - Environmental Spatial Analysis


Credits: 4
An interdisciplinary examination of the theory and techniques used in the mapping and geographic analysis of environmental problems. Environmental research increasingly depends on the ability to gather, analyze, and present spatial and temporal data using geographic information systems (GIS). Students are introduced to the use of these technologies through the analysis of environmental case studies. Selected topics include: map interpretation, map projections and scale, land geographic analysis and modeling. The class includes a weekly three-hour laboratory.

Prerequisite: ENVSC 110  or permission of the instructor.

Distribution Requirements: CL, QR.

This course may NOT be counted as a laboratory course for the Natural Science distribution requirement for students who matriculated before Fall 2016.
