Certificate Learning Outcomes
GIS and Spatial Analysis
Upon completion of the certificate, students should be able to:
- Critique and make defendable decisions on the proper selection and use of geographic data (format, scale, lineage, accuracy) in spatial analysis and modeling problems.
- Develop statistically valid spatial models which test and then correct for potential issues of randomness, independence, and autocorrelation.
- Recognize how GIS and Spatial Analysis can be used to solve spatial issues in the fields of hydrology, forestry, wildlife, soils, geology, planning, economics, energy, and conservation, under changing land use/cover and climate scenarios.
- Conduct a GIS and Spatial Analysis study which applies all aspects of spatial data collection, development, analysis, modeling, and interpretation following the scientific method.
