Spatial Data Design for GIS
Academic Noncredit

Meets with GEOG 6150. Graduate students should enroll in GEOG 6150 and will be held to higher standards and/or more work. Digital spatial data is widespread due to the global positioning system (GPS), satellite-based remote sensing, intelligent transportation systems and other geographic information technologies. Spatial data is important and useful due to geographic information systems (GIS) and other spatial applications such as Internet map serving and location-based services. However, spatial data involves complex objects and relationships that cannot be accommodated easily by standard database management systems. This course reviews the fundamentals of database design and data management to support GIS and other spatial applications. Topics include modeling spatial data, spatial database design, spatial query languages, spatial database storage and indexing, and spatial query optimization.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
