This course explores the variety of ways in which geographic information systems (GIS) are utilized in the development and management of community and social services. Educational administrators, health professionals, police and social agencies have come to depend on GIS for strategic planning and day-to-day operations. This course focuses on the analytical capabilities of GIS and their potential uses for the improvement of social infrastructure. For example, network analysis can be employed by social service providers to determine a new location based on public transit access and also by school boards to determine optimal school bus routes; cluster analysis can be employed by crime analysts to determine hot spots of criminal activity to increase patrols; and also by epidemiologists to identify areas of disease. Special attention is given to data issues and students will be able to enhance their knowledge and skills of Microsoft Excel and Access as well as ArcGIS and MapInfo Professional.
