Course Description

This workshop introduces students to the power of data using geospatial technology. Students will learn the fundamentals of data collection, analysis and visualization using industry standard tools and technology.  Students will gain hands on experience with data collection using GPS and will examine the importance of crowd sourced data through the using geographic information systems.


This course will start with understanding the importance of spatial learning and decision-making. Students will begin to make connections between data while increasing their knowledge of the world around them. Students will work with a number of different datasets, from GPS data collected around campus, to health and demographic data to social media and crowd-sourced data. Students will learn to collect, question, and look for patterns and correlations in their investigations. The goal of this workshop is to connect the “where” in the “why” and the “what” of data. 


A geographic information systems (GIS) lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends. It provides insight into datasets that might otherwise not be identified. The amount of data collected and stored is massive. Finding ways to use that data and make sense of what is out there is an emerging and important task. Geospatial science provides a powerful way of visualizing and understanding data.

Spaces remaining: 18
