It’s been estimated that 80% of all data has a spatial component. Come learn how to map it and analyze it during Interterm, and you may make new discoveries!

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a set of powerful tools 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

This course is in six parts: January 2 – 5 and 8 – 9, each day from 9 a.m. – Noon
