Describtion/Outcomes This course introduces students to some major theories in Computer Graphics Information Systems (CGIS) applications. It will examine principle of information visualization, spatial and attribute data management, analysis and manipulation of the data and information in the creation of useful information. This course also covers the development of the Graphical Information Systems, which is generally used in many applications. The development of interactive information visualization by using current computer graphics and multimedia technologies will also be discussed. At the end of the course, students are expected to understand the concept of CGIS and Information Visualization, develop data management modules to handle spatial and attribute data in GIS application.
