Utilizing GPS and GIS Applications

Gain a better understanding of how to apply the usage of GPS and GIS in different settings.

This topic will cover the how and why of exploring the greatest data trove in history. It covers the development, science and application of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Geographical Information System (GIS). These two satellite based systems have made available to the military, governments and the public enormous amounts of important locational information about the earth and its populations. You will learn that this vast quantity of data is so much greater than they realized. With proper application and analysis these tools will help you better understand the world around us, its changes and how to apply those findings to solve small and large problems of today and tomorrow.
