This course will explore programming methods and applications in geographic information science. Basic automation methods of repetitive or complex tasks using Model Builder and Python scripting will be explored through the lens of spatial thinking and computational thinking. Fundamentals of Python will also be explored for use inside and outside of the GIS environment.
This is a multimodal course, and meets with the following sections: University, UWW, and Mt. Ida. The University sections will be held at the Amherst campus remote synchronously, at Mt. Ida face-to-face. The UWW section will be fully asynchronous with options for synchronous interactions for interested students. Please contact your Advisor for more info.
