GEOS2305 - Introduction to Spatial Thinking

GEOS 2305 Introduction to Spatial Thinking (3 semester credit hours) Explores the role that spatial thinking plays across a variety of subject areas, including the sciences, social and policy sciences, engineering, and business. Various aspects of spatial patterns, trends, and themes and methodologies for bringing spatial considerations into these areas are discussed. Geotechnologies, such as global positioning systems (GPS), remote sensing, and geographic information systems (GIS) will be employed to support spatial thinking and its applications. Emphasis will be placed on learning spatial concepts instead of specific software. The course is of value not only to future specialists in GIS, but to all students with interest in applying spatial thinking techniques to their specific fields. (Same as GISC 2305) (3-0) Y
