GGY 426: Environmental GIS
The goals of this course are for students to develop a GIS project that addresses an environmental issue and to learn several analytical techniques. Therefore, the course consists of two parts: a theoretical component covered during the lecture periods and readings from the course text book and an applied component where you develop a GIS project, analyze spatial and aspatial data, and professionally present the project by developing a Powerpoint slideshow and poster. The theoretical component of the course will consist of lectures, student presentations, and group discussions of the assigned readings. Your responsibility is to read the assigned chapters and any other readings I assign, be prepared, and participate in the classroom discussions. Each of you will be assigned a reading where you will present the main points of the reading to the class.
