The goal of this free
class is to provide a rapid introduction to the complex arts and sciences
behind operating a GIS and developing a spatial analysis project.
In six, two-hour lectures
the students are presented with the basics of spatial analysis using the
free TNTlite version of TNTmips GIS. Outside of class the students examine
examples of projects conducted using basic spatial analyses. from these
examples they develop ideas for personal projects.
The second 'half' of the
course is when the students execute their projects. Completed projected
will be presented on the Internet with links found here.
