GEOG 311 Introductory Cartography and Geovisualization
This course is an introduction to cartography and focuses on computer-based map making skills. It begins with the history of cartography, cognitive maps, and the use of maps in the past and modern times. Topics covered in this course emphasize spatial data handling, principles of cartography and symbolization, map elements and design, and mapping techniques such as choropleth, proportional symbol and dot maps. Students will learn to adopt appropriate spatial data and mapping techniques to create accurate and creative digital maps reflecting given phenomena.
Bachelor of Science in Geography
A much more specialized degree, the Bachelor of Science offers concentrated specializations in one of two aspects of Geography: physical geography or geographic information science (GIS). The BS has fewer general education requirements and require solid backgrounds in mathematics and basic science.
Minor in Geography
We offer an undergraduate minor with two options, which augment other fields of study and broaden career opportunities: General Geography or Geographical Information Science (GIS). A minor in Atmospheric Science is also available from the Department. You should carefully consider which minor best meets your academic goals before choosing one.
