I created a 5 minute intro video and a more traditional syllabus for GEOG487 – Environmental Applications of GIS.  The video gives a brief overview of the environmental science and GIS topics covered in the class, examples of deliverables, and the tools we use for course communication.  The traditional syllabus provides detailed information about technical requirements, grading, and academic integrity.

Here is the Course Intro Page & Video and a traditional syllabus.
