Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a powerful tool to discover spatial relationships and illuminate your research with intuitive maps:

• Illustrate historic sites and extract features from old maps
• Spatially correlate census, economic, and other data
• Display geologic formations and delineate watersheds
• Track human, animal, and plant populations
• Map locations from a GPS receiver

The course is in four parts, Monday through Thursday, June 17-20:

• Constructing and Sharing Maps (including with Google Earth)
• Mapping Named Data (including census data and street addresses)
• Mapping Coordinate Data (including using a GPS receiver)
• Mapping Image Data (including scanned maps and satellite data) and Extracting Map Features
