I'm Looking For ...

... Definitions and Basic Concepts

We've rounded up some websites and instructional material that we think do a good job of explaining the basics.

... GIS Building Blocks

A typical research project or class assignment requires construction of a project-specific geographic information system.

... Web Maps and Mobile Aps

GIS applications that are published as mobile aps or that run on the Internet are everywhere and their variety and functionality are expanding rapidly.

... Mapping Concepts and Methods

In our work, the term "mapping" refers to the process of converting features or conditions on the earth's surface to spatial databases.

... Education and Careers

Jobs that are of interest to our students often involve geospatial technology applications. Acquiring a meaningful GIS credential through college-level classroom and project work can be a significant career booster.
 

GIS Courses In ENV SCI Will Change In 2014-15

Remote Sensing and GIS (ENV SCI 454/654) is being offered for the last time in Spring 2014. Info is sketchy on what the NAS part of GIS instruction will look like going forward. The table below shows what the plan looks like as of mid-November 2013. Note the word "PRELIMINARY" and stay tuned.

However the final configuration winds up, it's a given that the 7-week intro class in PEA will be a prerequisite. Personal opinion? Environmental Science majors should consider taking PU EN AF 250 as early in their careers as possible. Sophomore year is not too soon.
