This course introduces basic theories of GIS and teaches hands-on skills using the technology, with particular emphasis on application to urban planning problems. The course has a theoretical component and a practical component. The theoretical component is presented primarily during lecture/discussion sessions and is intended to provide you with an understanding of what a geographic information system is, how it works, and what it can and cannot do. More importantly, the theoretical component aims to help you think more deeply about spatial problems and, hopefully, informs your work in the practical component. The practical component will be conducted during weekly lab sessions, which are devoted to developing GIS software skills and urban spatial analysis techniques.
