Cartography, GGY2500, is the first course in our ‘geospatial track’ and provides an introduction to the wealth of geospatial data and technologies that are used almost all disciplines today. The lectures and in-class labs will focus on map reading and interpretation, spatial data, Geographic Information Systems, Remote Sensing, and web mapping technologies as they relate to presenting information through maps. The class will meet MWF at 11:15-12:05 in 1246 Oxendine. Other courses in the ‘geospatial track’ that will be taught in future semesters are Intro to Geographic Information Science and Remote Sensing.
GGY2500 is a required course for the Environmental Science major and Geography Minor and Concentration.
