GIST 5200 - Geographic Visualization

Course emphasis is on advanced theory and hands-on practice in learning to create and apply interactive, dynamic, and multidimensional graphical representations of geographic data. The graphical representations are intended to facilitate the production and use of geographic knowledge in various application domains. Students will be introduced to Web programming to allow them to develop various kinds of online and mobile visualization tools. They will learn about and apply different approaches to evaluate the usability of the tools they create.
