SO432--Geographical Information Systems (2-2-3)


Geographical Information Systems (GIS) use computers to manipulate geographic data, combining maps and data bases.  This course examines the basics of map projection and datums, raster and vector data bases, and the design, manipulation, and analysis of geographic data. We will discuss the use of remote sensing to collect data and provide background maps, and the use of digital elevation models to provide a framework for 3D display.
