  Course: GIS 211
  Title:Spatial Modeling & Analysis
  Long Title:Spatial Data Modeling and Analysis for GIS
  Course Description:Examine techniques for modeling and analyzing spatial data in a GIS. Topics include defining object models and geodatabases as they are used to access geographic data and build data models, creating new information from existing data through data classification, geoprocessing, presentation, and display and using raster analysis to display and analyze spatial data.
