Course Title:Spatial Analysis for Integrative Natural Resource Problem Solving
Use of geographic information systems (GIS) and related technologies (GPS, aerial photography) to study natural resources in Costa Rica. Students will address questions like "How do animals use shade-grown v. full-sun coffee farms?” while learning technologies and methods to collect, analyze, and map natural resource data for forests, wildlife, fisheries, and water resources.
Duplicate Credit:Not open to students with credit in FANR 3800 or FANR 3800L or FORS 3910-3910L
Nontraditional Format:The course will be taught in summer through-session. Travel to Costa Rica will be restricted to the summer short session I; therefore, the course instruction will be intensive, having lecture (80 minutes) and lab time (3 hours) daily, often integrated to improve learning through immediate application. Lecture/lab hours are listed as if it was a fall/spring semester-long course. Student project work will continue after the travel portion and final projects are due before the end of through-session.
