Geospatial Technology II (8424/36 weeks) Course Description

Course Description

Course Code:8424
Duration:36 weeks
Suggested Grade Levels:10–12
Prerequisites:Geospatial Technology I (8423/36 weeks)

Geospatial Technology II builds upon the study and use of Geospatial Technology I. Students further explore and analyze the natural and human-made world, locally, globally, and beyond. Students use tools, processes, and techniques to create, store, access, manipulate, and revise data to solve human challenges. Data is created, collected, and used to analyze spatial relationships. These experiences employ real-world spatial analysis models and guidelines for integrating, interpreting, analyzing, and synthesizing data, with a focus on both the implications and the limitations of such technologies. Students will also use network-based data management systems.
