Course Requirements
Students will be expected to attend every class and to complete 6 GIS and written assignments - these will require additional computer/lab time outside of class. Each student will also complete a mapping/analysis project of his/her choice, assemble and document a spatial database for the project, and create a poster and accompanying short paper explaining the project and showing results. The assignments and final project will require significant additional computer/lab time outside of class (averaging 5-7 hours a week).  There are very few readings - the bulk of the work is hands-on for assignments and the final project.

Grading
Assignment points are as listed for each assignment (the total possible points for assignments add up to 70)
Final project poster and short paper - 30 points
