ENVS 390 - Geographic Information Systems

(4 cr) An introductory course into the many varieties of remote sensing employed within the environmental sciences and applications of these techniques to field analysis. The course will focus on application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to the environmental sciences. These systems employ computers to store, retrieve, transform, and display spatial environmentally oriented data and have a myriad of applications in environmental studies. Remote sensing is typically employed in environmental analyses, ranging from land use to wetlands characterization, requiring the environmental studies student’s awareness of these frequently applied techniques.   Prerequisites: ENVS 201  and ENVS 202 , or BIOL 208  and BIOL 209 .
