This introductory class provides a general overview of Geographical Information Systems (GIS). GIS, a problem solving tool that uses spatial analysis, is rooted in the science of geography and provides visualization of data in a spatial environment (maps). This system of data analysis is often the key to solving problems and making decisions for organizations around the world. GIS is used in almost every field, from transportation, health, and public safety to natural resources. Join this introductory class to learn what GIS is, how organizations are using it to solve problems, and learn about career opportunities in GIS.

In these next 4 weeks, you'll produce short pieces you have yet to imagine: no excuses, no inner dialogue, no internal editor, no rationalizations. An hour before each class, you will receive a prompt: a word, image, or phrase. As with the original Boot Camp course, you will draft a piece based on the prompt, and join your fellow writers to share what you've written. Trust the process. Be amazed. You and your classmates have wondrous stories to tell when prompted.
Schedule with Shenley Neely, our Adult Education Site Assistant, for a one-on-one practice session to learn how to use the Zoom platform.
