Instructor: Dr. Ming-Hsiang Tsou
This course is designed to
demonstrate interdisciplinary features in Geographic Information Systems
(GISystems), which involves geography, cartography, computer science, GPS, and
remote sensing. The lectures and lab
exercises will provide an introductory knowledge of GIScience and a balance
among spatial analysis theory, computer technology, and GISystems techniques.
Students will learn how to get spatial data into the computer, to organize data
so that spatial patterns can be explored, and to learn basic GIS concepts such
as query and map overlay. In
addition to the basic training of GIS software and techniques, this class will
enable students to:
GIS professionals regarding both theoretical and technical issues.
Work in groups to
conduct GIS projects, which reflects current GIS industry tasks.
thinking capability, exanimate various geography problems by using GIS tools.
