GEOG 59078 - GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SCIENCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS
(Slashed with GEOG 49078 and GEOG 79078) The study and management of natural hazards are inherently reliant on both physical and human processes and spatial patterns. Given the many variables involved and the variety of scales at which they operate, use of geographic information system (GIS) has become standard practice in research on hazards and in their management by government agencies at all levels. Students are exposed to a wide array of spatial data that is used in these activities, as well as standard mapping and spatial analysis procedures and forms of data dissemination. Prerequisite: GEOG 49070 or GEOG 59070 or GEOG 59071; and graduate standing.
