- Welcome to ES 551 Computer Mapping Systems! This course will be taught for on-campus and distance-learning students during the fall semester, beginning in August 2012. The course preliminary schedule is now available.
Distance-learning students must have access to Idrisi software, which is the primary GIS utilized for this course. Distance-learning students can obtain the "student-starter license" for $95, upon proof of student status. Note: Idrisi is for PC computers; it is difficult to run on "Mac" computers.
The course begins officially on Aug. 16. All distance-learning students should contact the instructor. Please fill out and return the student agreement form. For more information, contact J.W. Aber @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
