This course builds upon the skills and knowledge you acquired in the ‘Introduction to GIS’ course. ‘Advanced GIS’ can be thought of as ‘Advanced and Applied GIS’ in the sense that this course is designed to be applicable to planning practice and future professional/academic needs. We now expand GIS and geospatial data from merely ‘map makings’ to meaningful data collection and geospatial data analysis using GIS as a problem-solving tool. In this sense this course is to equip students with cutting edge computing skills, and introduces to new GIS tools, ArcGIS extensions, data types, and real-world analytical applications. It combines lectures, readings, discussions, hands-on exercises, and individual projects.
