ENVR 290 Computer Applications in Resource Management

ENVR 290: Computer Applications in Resource Management (RFW). Land and Natural Resource Management is quite complex partly due to the need to understand and account for many different and often competing interests. The locations of those interests and the relationship between each creates the need to use systems like Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The content of ENVR 290 will cover software used for data gathering, exploration, assembly, display and presentation of land and natural resource information. One focus will be common geospatial analysis and preparing basic cartographic maps using ArcGIS software, particularly on integrated projects aligned with your other RFW classes. Another focus will be setting up for efficient mobile data collection, collecting accurate data, and importing mobile data into various applications.
