GIST601: Introduction to Geographic Information Systems and Technology I
This course combines an overview of the general principles of geographic information science and its relation to the nature and analytical use of spatial information in GIS software and technology. Students will apply the principles and science of GIST through a series of practical labs.

GIST602: Introduction to Geographic Information Systems and Technology II
This course focuses on providing students with an introduction to spatial statistics, spatial analysis and their application in GIS software, and GIS programming. Students will learn about descriptive spatial statistics, multivariate spatial statistics, and normality, how to analyze distribution, direction, orientation, clustering, spatial relationships and processes, and how to render analysis into cartographic form. GIS programming skills focus on calculating values needed for analyses, building models to perform repetitive tasks, and creating customized GIS interfaces.
