Reflection on the Course

GEOB 270 contributed to my understanding of GIS functions and applications. From this course, I learned how to use various GIS analysis tools in multiple scenarios to conduct a comprehensive analysis on areas of interest. What surprised me about GIS was how easy it is to use and how really anyone can have access to the governmental data that can be used. All in all, I realized that it is one thing to access the data and be able to throw it all in ArcGIS to create a map, but it’s another thing to actually understand the data and its metadata in order to create ethical, user-friendly maps.
