Students explore the connections between land use decisions and land cover change, as well as how to predict the possible impacts of land use decisions into the future.
Students learn about the importance of good data management and begin to explore QGIS and RStudio for spatial analysis purposes. Students will explore National Land Cover Database raster data and made-up vector point data on both platforms.
