This course introduces the fundamental concepts of digital spatial databases and cartography to students enrolled or contemplating enrolment in the Certificate in Applied Digital Geography and GIS. Spatial data, that is, data that are geographically referenced, are at the core of a geographic information system (GIS). The ways in which spatial data are structured in a database have enormous implications for their use and the ways in which the data are mapped have important consequences for their interpretation. This course will explore the processes of spatial data collection, input and display, and the basic geographic and cartographic principles underlying those processes. Thus it will focus specifically on the nature of spatial data, database structures, and the visualisation of digital spatial data. Both ArcGIS and MapInfo Professional GIS software will be used.

Material Fee: A material fee of $25 is included in the total fee indicated above. For further information, see Material Fees.
