Spatial Thinking with GIS

Fall 2019

Taught By: Dara Mendeloff

Section: A

CRN: 1980

Credits: 4

With the rapid growth of computing technologies, geographic information systems (GIS) have become an important tool for examining many crucial urban issues, including human health, social equity, urbanization, and climate change. GIS are used extensively by nonprofit, business and government sectors to examine the spatial aspects of these issues and inform research, planning and decision making practices. This course offers a conceptual, technical and practical introduction to the field of spatial analysis and GIS. In collaboration with local nonprofit organizations engaged in practices of environmental planning and social justice, students and class partners will co-create knowledge and practices through applied GIS projects. Through these hands-on projects with class partners, students will experience project design and management, gain literacy in spatial data models and methods of spatial analysis, engage with theoretical underpinnings of spatial reasoning, and critically examine responsible methods of spatial analysis and cartographic representation.
