Geographic Information Science and Spatial Reasoning
(GEOG 104) (A General Education [GE] Course) Fall 2010
Note: GEOG104 will be taught by Dr. An Li in Fall 2011. Please contact him for more information about this class.
Instructors: Dr. Ming-Hsiang (Ming) Tsou, firstname.lastname@example.org (Fall 2010)
Lectures: Tues. Thurs 11:00am - 12:15 pm, Storm Hall 248
Lab: Web-based GIS exercises: http://map.sdsu.edu/geog104/lab.htm
This course will introduce fundamental concepts of geographic information science (GIScience), including geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), cartography, remote sensing, and spatial statistics. Advanced geospatial application tools, such as Google Earth, Google Map, and the National Geographic Map Machine will be used to demonstrate these concepts. Students will learn how to use these geospatial technologies and tools in addressing human and environmental problems. Students will be able to organize geospatial data, visualize spatial patterns, and conduct basic spatial query and map overlay functions.
Prerequisites: : Satisfaction of the Entry-Level Mathematics requirement (ELM).
