Criminal Justice B.Tech.

Course Description

Fundamentals of GPS/GIS System

This course is designed to provide students with basic understanding of global positioning systems (GPS) and geographic information systems (GIS). The focus will be primarily on the application, uses, management, implementation, and benefits of these systems (rather than the theory and the technical details of how GPS and GIS actually “work”). The course is also designed to give students with very little GPS/GIS background a working knowledge of how to gather spatially distributed and geographically referenced data, query data, analyze spatial relationships, and produce maps. The laboratory work will focus on teaching the student how to use GIS and GPS through hands-on exercises. Prerequisite: upper division standing and basic college computer course or permission of instructor 3 credits (2 lecture hours, 3 laboratory hours), fall semester
