Foundations of GIS GEOG:1050

The intent of this course is to introduce students to the basic principles and applications of Geographic Information Science (GIScience) and Geographic Information Systems (GISystems). Lectures provide the basic knowledge and theory needed to understand and implement spatial analysis skills. Laboratory exercises are designed to familiarize students with ArcGIS Pro, a GIS software commonly used by companies and the government. Labs ground the theoretical classroom discussions in practical applications.

By the end of this course, students will have developed a strong foundation of spatial analysis skills. This is one of the few classes that at completion you can add a couple of lines to your resume that will directly relate to job descriptions.

This course is offered every semester, and I alter semesters with Dr. Caglar Koylu.
