GEOG 80.08 Geospatial Technologies and Society

Beyond mapping the world, how do geospatial technologies help shape it? This course analyzes the political, economic, social, and cultural implications of geospatial data, media, and technologies. Topics covered include self-driving cars, Google Maps, and big geospatial datasets like satellite imagery repositories. Drawing on a variety of conceptual frameworks, students will learn how to evaluate geospatial technologies not only through their technical underpinnings, but also via their space-making processes and embeddedness in our everyday lives.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
