I am currently teaching or have taught the following courses:

  • GEOG 502, 452 & 380 (3 - 5 Person Team), Geoscience Techniques. This course is an introduction to geoscience field techniques and methodologies, including laboratory work. Surveying, sampling, and water testing are emphasized, as are techniques for field work in land-use planning, landscape analysis, site selection, and other key aspects of economic and social geoscience.
    -
  • GEOG 475, Experimental Design in GIS. Students that have pursued GEOG 475 with me as their instructor have studied Internet GIS with the utilization of ArcIMS or advanced customization in GIS by programming with MapObjects and/or ArcObjects. Students wanting to study Internet GIS will need to have completed GEOG 317, 319 and 417. For those wanting to advance their skills in GIS customization will need to have completed GEOG 317, 319, 417 and 419.
    -
  • GEOG 419, GIS Application Development. Planning and implementing GIS within an organization. Designing and developing GIS applications to support spatial decision making. The objectives of this course are: (1) to develop familiarity with the theory and design of decision support systems, (2) to develop understanding of cognitive psychology and models underlying decision support systems, (3) to develop competency with basic programming skills for writing GIS applications, and (4) to develop understanding of issues and steps involved in implementing and managing a GIS.
    -
  • GEOG 418, Internet GIS. This course develops an understanding and expertise in utilizing different techniques for creating, analyzing, and disseminating GIS data and services via the internet.
    -
  • GEOG 417, GIS Analysis & Modeling. This course develops expertise with a broad range of spatial analysis and modeling functions using GIS. A problem-oriented approach stresses the utility of GIS analysis to fields such as agriculture, business, natural resource management, and urban planning. The objectives of this course are: (1) to develop familiarity with digital spatial data sources, types, and access issues, (2) to develop working knowledge of spatial analysis functions supported by a GIS, (3) to develop competency with cartographic modeling using desktop GIS software, and (4) to develop experience with production and presentation of a GIS project.
    -
  • GEOG 318, GIS for Engineers. Application of fundamental methods of GIS with applications in surveying, water resources, traffic engineering and construction. This course is co-taught by the Department of Geography & Geology and the Department of Engineering.
  • GEOG 317, Geographic Information Systems (formally known as Introduction to GIS). This course is an introduction to the principles and applications of computer-based geographic information systems. Spatial information sources, data encoding, storage, management, analysis, and display are highlighted throughout the application of GIS techniques to problems in a variety of fields, including land use and natural resource management, transportation, and urban and regional planning. Students will become acquainted with both raster and vector data models using ArcGIS software.
  • GEOG 121, Meteorology. An introduction to the elements of the atmosphere, severe storms, atmospheric environmental issues, the interdependence between human life and the atmosphere, and rudimentary forecasting of basic weather systems.
  • GEOG 110, World Regional Geography. A general survey of the political, social, and ecological systems of the world. The course is concerned with the complexity and diversity of world peoples and cultures. The purpose of this course is to explore world regions, geographical concepts and spatial patterns of cultures, locations and the physical environment.
  • GEOG 100, Introduction to the Physical Environment. This course introduces the student to the major aspects of the physical environment. The purpose of this course is to increase the student's awareness of our physical environment, its landscape, its controls and processes, and the interrelationship of natural phenomena.
