Using GIS to Manage, Analyze and Promote Sustainability

This course will identify opportunities to promote, implement and manage sustainability projects through the use of GIS. Students will review real-world case studies of GIS application in solving energy reduction mandates, and will learn how to match GIS tools to specific sustainability challenges, including site selection, preservation efficiency evaluation, land use compatibility analysis and green marketing techniques. In addition to structured hands-on exercises, students will be able to complete a small GIS sustainability project of their own choice. Attention will be given to local and global efforts, including the application of GIS in monitoring California Senate Bill SB 375 and Assembly Bill AB32.
