Basics of Geographic Information Systems (GIS): how they are designed, created and used. Each 3-hour class will have an hour of lecture and 2 hours of computer lab, during which students will work through a set of lab exercises and their own chosen term project. Invited expert lecturers will describe novel applications of GIS in the geosciences. We will also introduce issues, standards, and technologies for distributing and exchanging GIS data across computing platforms and user communities.
