Use of geospatial technologies to map physical coastal and ocean processes is necessary for analysis of conservation issues, effective coastal zone management, and designation of marine protected areas. This intensive application course focuses on using GIS for spatial analysis and basic image processing to support coastal and marine research. Covered topics include benthic habitat mapping, spatial analysis of marine animal movements, habitat modeling, and mapping of marine protected areas. Fundamental knowledge of geospatial analysis theory and tools is required, as outlined in the prerequisites above.

Class Format: Approximately 40% lecture, 60% lab exercises.
