    Geospatial Technology - University of Delaware Dual Enrollment                                                                                               

    Course Description: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an applications-led technology. It's not a new "killer application", but a "must-have", innovative and essential computer application. Similar to a word processor, spreadsheet, or database manager when used for problem solving, a GIS is designed to manage "spatial' data in order to answer geographic questions. The science behind the GIS software is known as the field of geographic information science. The goal of this course is to provide students with the fundamental geographic concepts and principles of GIS through hands-on training in the use of the software. We will be using "real" world data, such as census, landuse/landcover, digital elevation models, and imagery datasets; students will learn the steps necessary to utilize the GIS to solve practical, real world problems.  By the end of the course, students will understand the functionality of GIS, develop the skills needed to utilize the technology, and gain practice in applying the software to examining geographic problems. ESRI's suite of software packages are used in this course.  (This course is for 11th and 12th graders with a GPA of 2.0 or higher.)
