Geog 353 Laboratory Information

Last Update: 10/15/18

The core of Geography 353 is the project: you will locate relevant data, clean up and process the data so it can be mapped in ArcGIS (GIS and mapping software), and design and produce a series of maps based on the data. You will be astounded that you end up knowing how to construct HTML pages, containing the project maps, which will be placed on the WWW. The WWW! Of all the bedevilled things!


Science Center & GIS Lab Access:

After Hours access: Students in Geography 353 have OWU ID card access to the Science Center after hours. I will also provide students with after-hours access codes for the GIS lab.
