(*Students will receive credit for only one of the following courses: GIS 120 or GIS 220)

This course covers advanced applications of geographic information systems (GIS), including digitizing with topology, georeferencing “as-builts,” and deriving new spatial data by importing computer aided drafting (CAD) drawings. Students learn how to distinguish the difference and value of raster data versus vector data, perform new trends in GIS including processing new raster data with photogrammetry of imagery collected by small unmanned aircraft vehicles (sUAVs), and create mobile applications for field data collection (i.e., fire hydrant inventory). The course may include field trips to industry events and to attend off-campus survey field exercises.
