Description/Abstract

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) encompass all aspects of spatial data analysis from data acquisition and manipulation through problem solving to the graphic presentation of results. Thus, GIS is a unique instrument for conducting undergraduate research as students learn to store, retrieve, manipulate, analyze, and display data according to a variety of user-defined specifications in order to address particular environmental and social problems. This presentation offers diverse examples of undergraduate research projects based on the scientific method that were accomplished using GIS.
