CIS 360 - Geographical Information Systems

4 CR

This course is designed to discuss the various issues of using spatial data contained in information systems to aid decision makers. The use of a Geographical Information System (GIS) gives the user a valuable tool in the decision-making process by combining the power of the database with the power of a graphical presentation tool to identify trends and other information hidden within the information system. Topics include fundamental cartographic issues, properties of spatial data, processing spatial data, presentation of spatial information, and GIS operations. (This course is cross listed with DSC 360 .)

Prerequisite(s): Basic computer application skills will be assumed.
