Relevant Classwork
Spatial Analysis Techniques (Fall ’17)
Devoted to description and application of methods for analyzing spatial distributions and to evaluation and assessment of geographic research problems in the context of GIS technology.
Field Research Methods (Fall ’17)
Basic elements of geographic field research performed in Radford area. Course focuses on tools of field analysis. Students prepare single or group projects as indication of acquisition of logic of spatial analysis.
Database from the Manager’s Perspective (Fall ’17)
An examination of enterprise database management systems and reporting tools from the user/manager perspective. Emphasis is on data gathering, data organization, data retrieval, data integrity, and security. Database systems for transaction processing and data warehousing are compared and contrasted. Reporting, data mining, and decision support systems are introduced.
Programming in Python
Encompassed training in the programming language that GIS cartographic conventions such as ArcGIS and Esri are based in.
Maps and Mapping
Encompassed training in interpreting USGS maps and calculations in spatial measurements of various types. Also included introductory topics of ArcGIS and Esri programs.
Intro to GIS
Encompassed training in introductory GIS techniques and analysis; including the use of desktop and web-based, ArcGIS and Esri programs. And is designed to introduce students to the general concepts of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and how to use GIS across a wide variety of disciplines.
Fundamentals of Cartography
Cartographic theory with a focus on map design will be discussed in lecture and in practice with a lab. Topics will include but are not limited to studying map layout, balance, typography, color use, use of map projections for presenting spatial information, use of map symbols, as well as learning to design different categories of maps including dot maps, proportional symbols, and choropleth maps.
Intermediate GIS Concepts
Intermediate GIS concepts will be studied related to geoprocessing and analyzing geographic phenomena. Students will learn to use various extensions and tools for a variety of GIS routines. Data structures in GIS, date sources for GIS, and data and software compatibility issues in GIS will be covered.
