COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EV498 ADV GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYS 2020 1 Geography and Environmental Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course examines the analytical methods used in Geographic Information systems (GIS) and provides cadets with a clear understanding of the theoretical/conceptual aspects of algorithms found in GIS software. Lectures focus on the underlying mathematical basis for widely used spatial analytical techniques. Among the topics covered are neighborhood operations, map transformation, spatial interpolation, terrain analysis, network analysis, spatial overlay, fuzzy sets, neural networks, and expert systems. In-class practical exercises and laboratory assignments compliment the lectures by providing hands-on experience with a variety of advanced analytical techniques. The course culminates with a capstone term project that allows cadets to identify a scientific problem, formulate a hypothesis, use GIS to solve the problem, and then present the results of their analysis.
LESSONS: 30 @ 75 min (2.000 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
