This class is an introduction to Python programming in general and an introduction to programming for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in particular. This project- and lab-oriented course covers the guiding principles behind programming syntax and data structures, and how to apply these techniques to the development of custom standalone GIS programs and the integration of these into commercial GIS platforms.
GEOG 695 Frontiers in Geographic Information Science
Investigates methodology and the latest development of technologies of Geographic Information Science; topics related to representations of space and time, geocomputation, spatial data mining, and CyberGIS.
GEOG 678 WebGIS
Internet architectures; setup, management and maintenance of web-based Geographic Information System (WebGIS) servers, data and services; use of WebGIS data an services in the creation of custom web-based maps; analysis of WebGIS system architecture, design and implementation.
GEOG 660 Application in GIS
Basic concepts of design, planning, and implementation of geographic information systems.
This course covers how to address spatial and Spatio-temporal problems by employing Remote Sensing-based raster analysis and modeling. The emphasis will be on the theoretical and conceptual underpinnings, with practical reinforcement and extension through laboratory exercises and a project.
