GEOG 58 Critical Analysis in GIS

This course develops the elements of critical analysis using geographic information science (GIS). While using GIS as a method to ask questions and analyze geospatial data, students will also explore the ways that GIS is shaped by its underlying assumptions, embedded politics, societal impacts, knowledge-generation capabilities, and other limitations. Lab sessions will incorporate learning GIS analysis in the open source statistical package “R”, in tandem with readings and discussions about the theoretical and social dimensions of GIS.

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.
