This course introduced participating students to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) utilizing New York City as a site of spatial investigation. Organized as a practicum covering both technical and theoretical geospatial concepts, the final student projects on display represent the culminating efforts of each student based on course material and individual research efforts. Students conducted their own research, data gathering and GIS analysis to achieve their final mapping projects.
