ENVR126 - Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS)


Credits: 3
Lecture: 3
Lab: 0
Technological Competency (t)
Description: Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a non-lab science course aimed at both science and non-science majors. Although there is no separate lab time scheduled, this course will focus on computer mapping exercises, so it will meet in a computer lab. The student will be introduced to the field of GIS and how GIS relates to the real world. After learning mapping basics, the student will learn how data is gathered, stored, edited, mapped and analyzed using GIS. Since GIS is now important in almost every aspect of our technologically oriented world we will examine important applications of GIS in various fields of study including environmental studies, health, business, geography and criminal justice. (Prerequisites: MATH-021, MATH-025 or satisfactory completion of the College’s basic skills requirement in algebra; READ-095 or satisfactory completion of the College’s basic skills requirement in reading; ENGL 121 or COMP-129)
