GIS 1220 - Introduction to Geospatial Sciences

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): Minimum, acceptable performance standard scores on reading, writing, and mathematics pre-assessment tests. CSS 1010 or CMS 1010, with a grade of “C” is strongly recommended but not required.

Description: The purpose of this course is to provide a functionally integrated entry into geospatial science. The students will learn basic concepts needed to understand maps, geospatial mapping terminology, and basic field and desktop mapping tools. The focus of this class is on learning the concepts that underlie geospatial mapping and learning the basic software and GPS tools required to start a student in the mapping sciences. Basic analysis and spatial problem-solving skills are addressed in this course. Intermediate and advanced spatial analysis skills are taken up in subsequent GIS courses.

Note: Students may not receive credit for GEG 1220 and GIS 1220.
