Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have been designed as electronic ways to store large volumes of data. In the environmental field, GIS systems have become a very important tool for storing environmental data, as a way to produce maps and encode valuable information and data about map features that can be readily accessed for environmental projects. This class is designed to give students in the environmental field and other science disciplines a working knowledge of how GIS systems are compiled and utilized.
