The term “Geographic Information System” refers to the synthesis of information (data), software, and hardware for the express purpose of better understanding the world in which we live. Data are collected and managed within this system, and are ultimately used to question, analyze, and interpret patterns that occur throughout physical space. The interaction between different types of data reveals patterns and relationships that are not otherwise readily detectable. This course will provide students with the theoretical concepts necessary for advancement in the field of GIS, and further enhance their experience in a wide range of multidisciplinary endeavors. Note: This course requires students to install software on a Windows-based computer (Windows 7 or higher) in order to complete assigned course work.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) contain a powerful set of tools for data acquisition, management, query and display. This course will provide students with a substantial foundation of skills to merge both theoretical and applied information with hands-on practical training utilizing the basic tools provided with the ArcGIS Online software. Students will become familiar with GIS and with GIS software as they create ArcGIS Map projects addressing security and intelligence issues.
