GEOG 352 - GIS & Land Change Science

Type of Course: Seminar
The participants in this seminar will work collaboratively to create new GIS-based methods to measure and to explain land change over time and its environmental consequences. The work is linked closely to funded research at Clark University. Students must take initiative and be creative because we will address issues for which standard methods of analysis do not yet exist. A goal of the seminar is to create the methods. Students will make regular oral presentations in class to report on progress. Participants will be encouraged to present the results at professional conferences such as the Association of American Geographers meeting. A prerequisite is Introduction to GIS or competency in GIS. Courses in statistics and quantitative modeling are useful, but not essential. This is a graduate level course in which undergraduates can enroll with special permission from Professor Pontius (
