Course Description for Advanced Spatial Information Systems
Advanced Spatial Information Systems
Prerequisite: CIS 5870C
This course will provide participants with advanced knowledge of spatial principles and professional practices related to enterprise-scale Spatial Information Systems (SIS) and specialized applications that utilize SIS technology. The course will explore how SIS technology can be integrated with other technologies to create new business process models. The laboratory component will provide participants with the advanced technical skills needed to design and implement a SIS and develop applications that utilize SIS technology. The course will give participants a "hands on" opportunity to explore how SIS technology can be integrated other technologies such as mobile computing, the web, and wireless communications. Participants will be required to conduct an individual research project and make a professional presentation.
