Course Description

GIS professionals often need to work with very large datasets, both within and outside of a GIS. This course examines the management of those data, from modelling geographic space in different ways appropriate for user needs, to utilizing query languages specific to spatial data, and being able to integrate data in different formats. In addressing those topics, special focus will be put on the current object-relational database model and ESRI's ArcSDE. The importance of data warehousing to spatial decision-making will also be addressed.
