The lectures introduce the basic concepts of GIS, data sources, data structure, data management, map projections and coordinate system, making maps, and spatial analysis. Students will also learn how to use the fundamental knowledge of GIS to solve real world problems. Through the hand-on exercises, students will get familiar with the interfaces and analysis tools in the ESRI software package ArcGIS. Students will also practice applying GIS as a tool and a methodological approach to spatially analyze environment and public health data.
