Technique Courses

GEOG-3330(3) RESEARCH METHODS IN GEOGRAPHY (Le3) This course introduces students to skills for conducting geographic research, and explores the uses, limitations, and methods associated with quantitative and qualitative analysis in human and physical geography. These skills are relevant for careers in academic and prodessional fields. Topics include primary data collection and analyses, questionnaire design and structured interviews, data assembly and interpretation, research design and ethics, and the presentation of research results. This course includes a significant practical element.
Prerequisites: GEOG-1102(3) and GEOG-1103(3) and GEOG-1201(3), and GEOG-1202(3) and GEOG-2309(3), or permission of instructor.

GEOG-4320(3) PROJECTS IN GEOMATICS (S3) Students work in small groups to develop geomatics applications addressing selected planning, environmental management or research problems. Emphasis is on conceptual design of the selected application and implementation of a prototype solution using GIS and remote sensing approaches to problem solving. Students undertake team projects solicited from a number of external organizations through a team approach. Practical aspects of GIS project management such as team building, production of work plans and schedules, and the writing and presenting of final reports are introduced through this approach. Final results are presented in both oral and written reports.
Restrictions: Honours Form Needed.
Prerequisites: GEOG-3307(3) or GEOG-4307(3), and GEOG-3319(3) or GEOG-4308(3), or permission of instructor.

GEOG-4321(3) TOPICS IN GEOMATICS I (S3) This course provides a synthesis of the current developments within the field and study of geomatics as it relates to hyperspectral remote sensing. Particular attention is given to applications that have a focus on physical and urban systems. Additional topics are integrated where appropriate. Students are required to select an area of interest and lead class discussions based on their selection
.Restrictions: Honours Form Needed.
Prerequisites: GEOG-3307(3) or GEOG-4307(3), and GEOG-3319(3) or GEOG-4308(3), or permission of the instructor.

GEOG-4322(3) TOPICS IN GEOMATICS II (S3) This course provides a synthesis of the current developments within the field and study of geomatics with a focus on synthetic aperture radar for physical and urban systems. Additional topics within this course include LIDAR mapping, GPS surveying and advanced spatial analysis. Students are required to select an area of interest and lead class discussions based on their selection.
Restrictions: Honours Form Needed.
Prerequisites: GEOG-3307(3) or GEOG-4307(3), and GEOG-3319(3) or GEOG-4308(3), or permission of the instructor.

GEOG-4703(3) DIRECTED READINGS IN GEOMATICS (Le3) This course exposes students to contemporary and topical issues of geomatics through authoritative readings compiled by the instructor. Students are required to produce a short essay on a topic agreed upon by the instructor and the student.
Prerequisites: Permission of instructor.

GEOG-4901(6) HONOURS GEOGRAPHY THESIS (P) The Honours thesis provides the student with the opportunity to design and complete an original research project on a subject of interest and relevant to the discipline. In addition to completing the project, students in this course are expected to participate in a series of meetings throughout the academic year and make an oral presentation of the results of their research in April.
Prerequisites: GEOG-2309(3), 36 credit hours completed in Geography, Geography GPA of 3.0, and permission of the Department Chair.
