GIS is a spatial analysis system designed to improve environmental decision-making. Major topics include the examination of how digital earth resources data are collected, stored, analyzed and displayed while emphasizing natural resource problems. In addition, the use of other geographic technologies will be examined such as mapping, aerial photography, remote sensing and global positioning systems and their relationship to GIS.
