Mapping For The Common Good
Mapping for the Common Good
provides students of any background and any academic
specialty/interest a broad theoretical and technical
understanding of maps, spatial data and geovisualization. It is
intentionally structured to highlight the many ways in which
geographic information technologies and spatial reasoning skills
can profoundly impact our understanding of the world. It also
provides students with an opportunity to better appreciate how
spatial data and mapping can be used to develop strategies,
plans, and designs to improve the quality of life for communities
and their citizens.
