ENV* K280 - Environmental Surveying °


3 CREDIT HOURS
Prerequisite: MAT* K172 .
Environmental Surveying introduces students to the concepts, technologies and techniques that allow us to collect, manage, analyze and represent spatial information for a wide variety of applications. The course will cover basic concepts, definitions, and functions associat­ed with Land Surveying. We will examine how surveying can be applied in different fields including urban planning, wetland delineation, environmental and natural resource management, site remediation, and land-use. We will also consider larger societal issues in this course, including how the increasing use of surveying, global positioning systems (GPS), and geographical information systems (GIS) technologies in public agencies, business and non-profit organizations has enabled business, government and the public to make more informed land-use decisions.
