Certificate in Geographic Information Science (GIS) - GIS Applications to Environmental and Geological Sciences ERTH 4520   GIS Applications to Environmental and Geological Sciences
CREDIT HOURS: 3
Geographic information systems (GIS) provide a rich set of new tools to the geologist and environmental scientist, not only to solve conventional problems, but also to explore transdisciplinary questions not readily answered by other means. This course builds on the fundamentals of GIS taught in ERTH 3500.03 to explore analytical tools that aid in decision-making processes encountered in mineral exploration, hydrogeology, site selection, environmental assessment, and global change analysis. The course concentrates on case studies and problem solving, including those requiring multi-criteria and multi-objective decision making processes.
NOTES: This course is not offered every year. Please consult department in the spring for further information.
