This is the culmination course for The Master of Geospatial Information Science and Technology degree. This course provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their accumulated degree skills and expertise by developing and communicating the solution to a complex geospatial problem through a Master's Capstone project. The project will include interoperable spatial and non-spatial data, web services, customized user interfaces and workflows completed in collaboration with a community partner. The student will design and manage a major project and professionally communicate their analysis and results to a public audience.

Student Learning Outcomes

The GIS program has been re-evaluating several course titles and catalog descriptions to update them based on best practices and to be more inline with the content of the courses. Titles and descriptions have not been updated since the courses were established nearly 7 years ago.
mlnosbis (Mon, 26 Sep 2016 13:29:53 GMT): This is a minor action only updating the course description and the year offering. The edits do not reflect any major revisions to the course.
