MESĀ 660. Introduction to Marine Geographic Information Systems. 3 Credit Hours.

Marine Geographic Information Systems are emerging as a distinct subset of GIS, due to fundamental differences between terrestrial and underwater spatial information (2-D vs. 3-D, multiresolution, synoptic data collection, time depth (4-D) modeling). Approximately the first half of this course is a brief review of basic GIS, and the second half concentrates on aspects of marine data acquisition and manipulation in the GIS context.
