About

GIS is a STEM discipline. The purpose of GIS 3 is to provide students with a capstone, project-based experience in the Geographic Information Science & Technology arena. It is designed to help students advance their understandings and skills with geospatial data and technology – it is not for beginners. GIS 3 serves as one of six courses that can be used to satisfy the elective requirement of the undergraduate GIS Letter of Program and it is a required course for Geography majors following the GIS track.
