Technique Courses

GEOG-2304(3) COMPUTER MAPPING (Le3,La2) This course provides an introduction to the theory, practice, and methods of computer mapping. Students make use of existing cartographic and statistical data bases, as well as input information through digitizing and scanning, to construct thematic maps using various microcomputer software packages.
Prerequisites: GEOG-1102(3) or GEOG-1103(3) or GEOG-1201(3) or GEOG-1202(3) or permission of instructor.

GEOG-2306(3) INTRODUCTION TO GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (Le3,La2) This course provides a systematic overview of GIS methodology and theory covering the essential principles of data acquisition, input, manipulation, and output. The laboratory component of the course provides hands-on experience using industry standarad software.
Prerequisites: GEOG-2304(3) or permission of instructor.
Restrictions: Students with standing in the former GEOG-3302(3) may not receive credit for GEOG-2306(3).

GEOG-2309(3) STATISTICAL TECHNIQUES IN ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS (Le3,La1) Statistics describe and summarize data, and make predictions about a population from the information contained in samples. This course provides a working understanding of the elementary statistical techniques and computational procedures for students with little background in mathematics, and focuses on the applications of these tools to the analyses of geographical and environmental data. Topics include scales of measurement, univariate descriptive statistics, time series analysis, probability, sampling design, hypothesis testing, regression and correlation analysis, and models as quantitative techniques.
Prerequisites: GEOG-1102(3) or GEOG-1103(3), or the former GEOG-1101(6) or GEOG-1201(3) or GEOG-1202(3) or permission of instructor.
Restrictions: Students with standing in the former GEOG-2310(3) may not receive credit for GEOG-2309(3).

GEOG-2316(3) INTRODUCTION TO REMOTE SENSING(Le3,La2) This course discusses the collection of information by measuring electromagnetic radiation, the storage of that information in other graphical or digital forms, and the subsequent analysis of the stored data. Sensing devices such as film, line scan cameras, and radar, operated from the ground, the air, or Earth satellites, will be discussed in relation to their general application.
Prerequisites: GEOG-1102(3) or GEOG-1103(3), or the former GEOG-1101(6) or GEOG-1201(3) or GEOG-1202(3) or permission of instructor.
Restrictions: Students may not receive credit for both GEOG-2316(3) and the former GEOG-3304(3).

GEOG-3307(3) ADVANCED COMPUTER MAPPING (Le3,La2) Topics introduced in Computer Mapping (GEOG-2304(3)) are expanded upon, and new topics are presented, through a series of seminars on selected areas of current cartographic research. Government agencies and businesses involved in map production are visited in order to examine methods and technology used in spatial data collection, handling and transfer. Lab work includes creating interactive hyper-linked maps and animated maps, showing spatial change over time. A significant component of this course is the completion of a substantial mapping project.
Prerequisites: GEOG-2304(3) or permission of instructor.
Restrictions: Students may not receive credit for both GEOG-3307(3) and GEOG-4307(3).

GEOG-3319(3) ADVANCED REMOTE SENSING (Le3,La2) This course provides instruction on advanced image processing and classification techniques. These techniques are applied to the study of physical and human environments through a series of laboratory exercises and assignments. Students also gain exposure to RADAR and hyperspectral remote sensing including exposure to handheld imaging devices.
Prerequisites: GEOG-2316(3) or permission of instructor.
Restrictions: Students may not receive credit for both GEOG-3319(3) and GEOG-4314(3).
