91A - Introduction to Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) mapping software used to manage, analyze and display
spatial information. Create reports and map layouts, query geographic
databases, and solve spatial problems. Emphasis on using GIS software
for practical applications in the fields of natural resource management,
disaster mapping, cartographic design, urban planning, business
and other related fields.
Course Student Learning Outcomes - GEOG 0091A - Beginning Arc GIS Software
CSLO 1 - Demonstrate ability to add data to ArcMap with layers lined up correctly and accurately with synchronized projections.
CSLO 2 - Label geographic features on map with software using standard cartographic principles.
CSLO 3 - Draw and edit geographic features.
CSLO 4 - Create and edit databases (with domains, fields, etc) including creating Arc GIS Geodatabases.
CSLO 5 - Perform queries on attribute tables.
CSLO 6 - Perform spatial queries on map layers.
91B - Builds on principles from Geog. 91A
focusing on GIS analysis, ArcTools and ArcView
extensions. Emphasis on advanced functions, spatial analysis and
3D modeling used in environmental and watershed assessment, natural
hazard analysis, business site analysis, resource management and
