Engs 620: Geospatial Information Technology
School of Engineering
This course is an introduction to the integration of the foundational components of geo-spatial information science and technology into a geopraphic information system (GIS). Numerous practical and applied geospatial techniques are introduced to demonstrate the use of geospatial information technology to the real world. As a case based course, students work through four distinct sections in the geospatial information technology workflow: 1. Data Collection 2. Data Preparation 3. Data Analysis 4. Data Presentation The components include the fundamentals of geodesy, GPS, cartographic design and presentation, image interpretation, and spatial statistics/analysis. The course addresses the manner in which the components are merged in a geospatial information system.
