Biography


M. Anwar Sounny-Slitine's research is aimed at understanding our world through the use of GIS in order to develop better planning tools for conservation, sustainable development, and floodplain management. His research is rooted in GIS, Geomorphology, and Sustainable Development and he has multiple projects in progress from investigating the driving force of alluvial megafans to developing geographic tools for renewable energy development. Sounny-Slitine is interested in how science can inform policy and applying what is learned in a GIS laboratory to the field.

Courses


GRG F305 • This Human World: Intro To Grg

82585 • Summer 2017
Meets MTWTHF 10:00AM-11:30AM CLA 0.112
GC SB

GRG f305 THIS HUMAN WORLD: INTRO TO GRG

Introductory survey of human geography, including human-environment relations, cultural patterns and processes, and geography's relation to other fields of study.

May be counted toward the global cultures flag requirement.

Additional hour(s) to be arranged.

GRG 310C • Spatial Data And Analysis

37310 • Spring 2017
Meets TTH 2:00PM-3:30PM PAR 203

This is an entry level course that will prepare the student for higher level courses in geographic methods and techniques. The course content consists of a series of modules designed to cover topics common to courses in Cartography, Geographic Information Science, Field Techniques, and Remote Sensing of the Environment.

We will examine quantitative and qualitative methods of sampling, representing, classifying, and analyzing geographic phenomena. We will examine conceptions of temporal and spatial scale, location, distance and direction, and examine a broad range of geographic research methods. Specific topics will include earth shape, gravitational and magnetic fields, map projections, coordinate systems, surveying and navigation, measurements and errors, spatial statistics, and spatial analysis.

Classes will consist of lectures and discussions of the readings. Students will complete ten exercises, a mid-term examination and a final examination.
