The Seidenberg School offers graduate and undergraduate courses in Location Analytics and GIS. These courses are delivered both online and in class. Look for advanced courses and concentrations in the near future.
CIT 196G – Introduction to Mapping and Web GIS (2 credits)
Mapping and Geographic information systems have become a necessary tool in decision making, visualization, and spatial analytics across a variety of disciplines and application domains including the sciences, humanities, business, social sciences and healthcare. Going beyond Google Maps, this introductory course introduces web and mobile-based mapping solutions. Through hands on projects, students will used web-based data to build web mapping GIS applications, build mobile applications for field collection, and analyze results using the latest industry tools, such as Google Maps, Social Explorer, and the ESRI web mapping platform, ArcGIS Online.

CIT 196L – Introduction to Location Intelligence and GIS (2 credits)
This course introduces Web-based tools for GIS, location intelligence, business analytics, and visualization. These tools can be leveraged in research in multiple business fields including retail, marketing, and decision support. Doing hands-on projects, students will use web-based data for mapping and analyze the data for market planning, site selection, customer segmentation, and risk assessment. Students will use the latest industry tools, such as ESRI’s ArcGIS Business Analyst Online (BAO) as well as ArcGIS Online, which is a cloud mapping platform that gives users the ability to build, visualize and analyze geospatial models across multiple disciplines. ArcGIS Business Analyst Online (BAO) provides location-based intelligence to enhance prediction and decision-making with map-based analytics for accurate reports and dynamic presentations by using tools and data, such as demographic, lifestyle, spending data, health, and education data.

CIT 351 – Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (4 credits)
This course provides an introduction to the analysis and design of geographic information systems. These are systems for which the data and solutions are location based. GIS systems are used in a variety of disciplines and applications including geosciences, environmental science, government, land management, non-profits and business. Students will learn how to create comprehensive GIS systems in a range of application areas.
IS 668 – Visualizing Information Systems: Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (3 credits)
Geographic Information Systems are characterized by spatial objects that have locations (e.g. addresses, landmarks, geopolitical boundaries, rivers, roads, etc.) and data associated with them (e.g. quantities, statistics, etc.) Emerging applications and research involves solving problems which asks IS related questions about geospatial information and applied in many situations including customer analysis, market analysis, site selection, etc. In this class students will learn how to use ArcGIS to analyze and develop GIS solutions.
IS 678 – Location Analytics and Web GIS (3 credits)
Geographic information systems are have become a necessary tool in decision making, visualization, and spatial analytics across a variety of disciplines and application domains. This course explores emerging cloud based GIS technology, location analytics, and web-based GIS solutions. Through hands on projects, students will used web-based data, build web GIS applications, use cloud-based services for location analytics, mobile applications and field collection applications.
