GIS for Environment Course Overview

Earth environment is a single, vast interdependent system. We cannot make demands on the environment in one part of the world without creating consequences in another. Earth’s increasingly complex environmental challenge demand increasingly sophisticated solutions. Geographic information system (GIS) is one solution to humanity’s need to better manage. Protect and preserve our environment.

Environmental GIS describes the use of geo-spatial management methodology and tools in order to assist in developing an Environmental Management strategy. As GIS applications reach a broader audience, and the utilization of GIS spreads into new industries every day, the demand within the private and public sectors continues to grow. GIS has become a primary means of communicating spatial information in a multitude of settings in environmental applications.

In this class, you will learn about basic GIS concepts including spatial data structures, data sources and transfer methods, projections and coordinate systems, geo-referencing, fundamental of spatial analysis, with the hands on exercise in Open source GIS Tools. Course exercise specially emphasis on environmental case studies and related tasks. Concepts presented in lecture will be put into practice through hands-on laboratory exercises utilizing the GIS software product like: ArcGIS, QGIS, GRASS
