GEOGY558

Applied Geographic Information Systems for Research and Planning

GIS is used widely in a range of industries and government agencies, and graduates competent in GIS are sort after for employment. This paper is designed as an introduction to GIS for graduate students and is co-taught with GEOGY328. It covers all aspects of GIS analysis, including remote sensing and model building. ArcGIS Pro is used in the labs and students have the opportunity to install this software on their home computers. Students gain 'hands on' experience with GIS laboratory exercises and undertake a graduate-level GIS project in an application of their choice.
