Course Description:

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of geospatial technology, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), cartography, remote sensing, and spatial analysis through a series of hands-on computer-based exercises. Participants will learn how to utilize geospatial technology to address social and environmental issues.

Essential Objectives:

1. Describe the fundamental concepts of Geographic Information Science and Technology.
2. Explain basic functions and uses of geospatial software and hardware.
3. Employ fundamental remote sensing and spatial analysis techniques.
4. Demonstrate basic proficiency in map creation and design principles, including thematic map display, employment of map projections, and cartographic design.
5. Create and acquire spatial data using sources including the Global Position System.
6. Access and create different sources of data and evaluate their quality.
7. Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating, and applying quantitative data and information.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
