BIOL 365 - Advanced GIS

4 credits
Advanced Geographic Information Systems expands on introductory GIS material by exploring topics in spatial statistics, programming, and multimedia. Research topics are studied within the context of team-based projects that support GIS analysis for community partners. The class takes a problem solving approach that emphasizes the importance of communication within teams and between students and community partners. As part of this approach, students meet with partners to set project goals and objectives, communicate with partners at critical stages of the project, present project results, and self-assess the strengths and weaknesses of the development process as well as the overall results. In order to link theory and practice, this course builds on the Community Based Learning (CBL) curriculum by connecting students to community partners that work globally, nationally, and locally. Student coursework in Advanced GIS includes a minimum 18-20 hours of work that directly supports our community partners, which also involves participation in off-campus activities.  Prerequisite: BIOL 302  or ENV 302 .  Same as: ENV 365 .  Course Offering: Even Spring Term.
