Course Description

By means of two experts' presentations and class discussion, this computer lab-based demonstration workshop offers opportunities to the lay public to gain an appreciation of the variety of ways in which geographic information systems (GIS) are utilized by educational administrators, health professionals, police, criminal analysts, social work professionals and epidemiologists in the development and management of community, social, and health services. Topics explored include how GIS and cluster analysis are deployed to decide school locations based on public transit availability; to determine hot spots of criminal activity to increase patrols; and to identify areas of disease for disease control efforts.
