Current Syllabi

The successful student will be prepared to complete the following learning objectives:

CO-1 Describe how the historical developments of geospatial capabilities have influenced military, intelligence, homeland defense and law enforcement operations.

CO-2 Evaluate how the application of geospatial products can improve future military, intelligence, homeland defense and law enforcement operations.

CO-3 Demonstrate the impact that Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have on geospatial analysis.

CO-4 Apply geospatial intelligence analyses to regional or international challenges associated with homeland defense, weather disasters, law enforcement or sources of conflict;

CO-5 Differentiate which space-based, terrestrial, or airborne remote sensing platforms are most appropriate to support specific operations and explain the most concise presentation venue.

Discussions: We can learn as much from each other as we will from the material. This is the purpose of the weekly discussion; to facilitate our getting to know one another and sharing our thoughts about the weekly readings, activities, and Discussion topic. Each week all students should respond to the discussion topic. Once others have posted their initial post, respond in turn by making comment substantive comments. You are required to respond to two other students’ discussions each week. It is expected that the response to your peers provides value-added information. A simple “yes/no/I agree/etc.” is not sufficient and definitely not at an undergraduate level. Do you support or dispute what your fellow student has posted? What are your justifications? Remember this is for your own learning benefit and a way to learn what others have experienced, so use the discussion boards wisely. Initial posting is due by 11:59pm ET Thursday and more than two responses due by 11:59pm ET Sunday.

Assignments: There are 3 assignments/practical exercises within the course. Instructions for the assignments are within the Assignment section of the classroom. Please reach out to me if you have any questions pertaining to assignments and their instructions. Assignments are due by 11:59pm ET Sunday.
