Voyages into the Technology Frontier: GIS
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used in the classroom, or in research, to visualize data in order to find answers, or even formulate the questions. Most everyone is familiar with GIS maps of states with reported flu cases, blue vs red states, or home prices on Zillow. But GIS can layer several datasets to enhance the visual even more to help find relationships, patterns and trends. The Office of Information Technology and the Center for Teaching Excellence will co-sponsor a Voyages panel which will discuss uses of GIS and GIS resources available to the University of South Carolina community.
