General introduction to programming language, such Visual Basic, with GIS related applications. Topics covered include fundamental data structures and algorithms, user-interface design, component object model, and data base management. Emphasizes rapid GIS application development with hands-on experiences. Students are expected to design and implement a project.
To register for this class, students do not need to have known Visual Basic before, although experience with a programming language will help. However, it is strongly suggested that students know how to use ArcGIS 8.
