Gog 592 GIS Project Development

GIS project development aims to introduce students to relate all their previous learning in graduate GIS courses and integrate them to solve a small-scale yet real problem that a student identifies. This course puts students in the roles of GIS professionals in industries responsible for addressing specific spatial problems. This course utilize a systematic approach that students need to understand underlying theories critically, to select appropriate tools or technologies to address proposed questions, and to execute and present the entire project professionally as a necessary component to prepare students for their academic or industrial careers. Students should have completed GIScience related courses (Cartography, GPS, GIS, or Remote Sensing) at advanced level, or upon the instructor’s approval.
