          Human-Environmental Systems                       

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD This course will
          focus  on  the  use  of  GIS  in analyzing
          social   and  environmental  systems  that
          constitute   complex   human-environmental
          systems.     Specific     dimensions    of
          environmental  and  social  sustainability
          such as land use, transportation, economic
          development,  environmental justice, etc.,
          will  then be explored  in detail. Spatial
          analysis  skills focused  on environmental
          processes  and  social  contexts  will  be
          developed   through   in-class  exercises.
          These   exercises   and   discussions  are
          designed    to   enhance   the   students'
          understandings of the planning process and
          of   the   complexities  of  applying  the
          concept  of  sustainability  in  the  real
          world.   The   course   will  end  with  a
          student-defined research project. Projects
          with  an  urban focus  are encouraged, but
          not required. Prerequisite: GES 386.
