Total semester hours required:
Students pursuing a BS Degree in Geography with a concentration in Geographic Information Systems may not earn the minor. For GEOG-4554, GEOG-4562, GEOG-4086, and GEOG-4564, only one course is required.
GEOG-3563 - Remote Sensing and GIS Integration
This course introduces the principles of remote sensing and explores the practical integration of remote sensing with geographic information systems.
GEOG-4083 - Faculty-Mentored Research
Research or other work related to student’s independent project. This is a 1-3 hour course repeatable up to six hours.
GEOG-4553 - Geographic Information System
An introduction to the use of Geographic Information Systems, including GIS theory, data input, spatial analysis, and final output.
GEOG-4554 - Computer Cartography
Computer-assisted map design and production.
GEOG-4562 - Airphoto Interpretation and Photogrammetry
Study on airphoto interpretation and photogrammetry. Topics include digital airphotos, correcting airphoto distortions, orthophoto generation, stereoscopy and DEM generation, airphoto interpretation techniques, and mapping with airphotos.
GEOG-4564 - Contemporary Remote Sensing Applications
This course applies remote sensing techniques to contemporary topics like image classification, LiDAR, natural resources, urbanization, water, or climate. Students will learn how to process remote sensing data and will develop remote sensing application projects.
GEOG-4753 - Contemporary GIS Applications
This course focuses on principles, methods, and applications of GIS technologies. It emphasizes hands-on opportunities to learn technical skills and best practices. Students will learn how to process different types of GIS data and will develop an individual project to design, implement and run GIS models.
