Open Source GIS

This applied course guides students in investigating and researching special topics and current events through Open Source geographic information systems. It builds upon geospatial skills previously acquired, and is designed for participants to learn how geospatial work can be done when presented with a proposal or problem but given little to no data, budget, or access to commercial off-the-shelf software or other resources. In this course, students will choose their own topic and learn to navigate it by planning, implementing, and disseminating the outcomes of a geospatial project. Prerequisite: GIS-4101 Intro to GIS and additional coursework or experience with GIS Projects
