GEOG 352 - GIS & Land Change Science


Students 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 to research at Clark University, thus topics vary from year to year.  Some products of previous years are vidoes available at www.clarku.edu/~rpontius. Students must take initiative and be creative because the course will address issues for which standard methods of analysis do not yet exist.  A goal of the seminar is to create and to communicate the methods for the professional community beyond Clark University. Students will make regular oral presntations in class to report on progress.  Students become qualified to make presentations at professional conferences such as the Association of American Geographers annual meeting.  A prerequisite is Introduction to GIS or equivalent competency in GIS.  This course is designed for doctoral and masters students, but senior undergraduates and other qualified students can enroll with special permission. rpontius@clarku.edu

Prerequisites: GEOG 190   or GEOG 390  or permission from Professor Pontius (rpontius@clarku.edu).

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered every fall
