Advanced GIS

Urban Planning

Spring 2013

Leah Meisterlin, instructor

Advanced GIS was a research seminar aimed at covering a variety of advanced techniques in geographic information systems analysis, for both practice and research. As a skills-based seminar, the course operated with a two-fold mission: to critically discuss the theories, concepts and research methods involved in spatial analysis and to learn the techniques necessary for engaging those theories and deploying those methods. Further, the class worked to meet this mission with a dedicated focus on the urban environment and the spatial particularities and relationships that arise from the urban context.
