Geography 85 – Applications of GeoSpatial Technologies


For 3 weeks we meet via Sierra College's online portal called Canvas.

We focus on case studies in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Case studies are simply real-world appications of this technology for what problem you are trying to solve. I have lectures on a local watershed. You will find your case studies on-line by researching.
