Geographic Information Systems
Geographic Information System (GIS)
GIS is a rapidly growing technology used to "capture, store, manipulate, analyze, and display all types of spatially referenced geographic information about what is where on the earth's surface and how they relate to each other" (ESRI 2002). Open to ALL undergraduate students. The GIS undergraduate certificate at Wichita State University is essential to undergraduate students anticipating working with its wide-ranging applications, including the capturing of data from your field of study into "layered spatial contexts" known as "Story Maps". No matter your field of study, GIS is definitely for you!
