GEOG 1080 - Introduction to GPS and Maps (3CR)


(3L) An introductory course in maps and satellite-based global positioning systems (GPS). The course provides a project-based introduction to geographic information systems (GIS), for individualized investigations into geography, cultural diversity and/or cultural evolution. This course introduces historic navigation techniques, and the cartographic concepts of scale, elevation, and coordinate systems. We examine how GPS work, and were first developed, and perform exercises that introduce the basic skills of using a handheld global positioning device.
