ENV 755b (Online) / 2020-2021

Modeling Geographic Space

Credits: 3
Teaching Mode: Online

Spring 2021: W, 9:00-11:50, online


An introduction to the conventions and capabilities of image-based (raster) geographic information systems (GIS) for the analysis and synthesis of spatial patterns and processes. In contrast to ENV 756a, the course is oriented more toward the qualities of geographic space itself (e.g., proximity, density, or interspersion) than the discrete objects that may occupy such space (e.g., water bodies, land parcels, or structures). Three hours lecture, problem sets. No previous experience is required.
