GEOG 300    Physical Geography: Exploring Earth's Environmental Systems    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B1; IGETC Area 5A
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course investigates the interrelationships between Earth and humans, with an emphasis on natural systems (solar energy balance, weather and climate, water resources, landforms, natural hazards, vegetation, and soil). Relevant application of these elements to today's world is stressed to help students better understand Earth's physical environment as well as human-environment interaction. A field trip is required to relate class discussions to the real world.

GEOG 332.1    Introduction to Desktop GIS    1.5 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 27 hours LEC
Description: This course introduces students to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) which are systems of computers and people used to integrate spatial data in order to make a decision. Topics may include analysis of environmental, economic, political, social, health care, and transportation data. Using desktop GIS software (such as ArcView) students will learn GIS skills including identifying zones, measuring distances, calculating areas, integrating spatial data and displaying output. This course will also cover basic software functionality, database construction, and management. This course is the first of a two-part series. This course may be taken four times on a different software package or version.

GEOG 332.2    Intermediate Desktop GIS    1.5 Units

Prerequisite: GEOG 332.1 with a grade of "C" or better
Advisory: CISC 300
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 27 hours LEC
Description: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are computer-based mapping programs that analyze spatial data. This course builds on the conceptual and practical foundations covered in GEOG 332.1 by further exploring the capabilities and functionality of desktop GIS software. Emphasis will be placed on GIS software functionality, address geocoding, beginning spatial database construction, spatial data management, spatial analysis, and cartographic presentation. This course may be taken four times on a different software package or version.
