GEOG 50.03 GIS Programming and Databases

This course is an introduction to Python programming and database (SQL) programming and design for intermediate Geographic Information Systems (GIS) users. This course teaches students to design and write clearly structured programs in Python in the ArcGIS environment. Students will develop programs to manage geospatial data, perform geoprocessing analysis to solve spatial problems, and automate mapping and visualization tasks. This course emphasizes the challenges and uniqueness of spatial data organization from specific database models to national spatial data infrastructures. Students gain theoretical and practical experience in designing, implementing, and managing geo-relational and object-relational databases.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
