Courses Taught

 

1) NRM 4315 Spatial Analysis in Natural Resources Management

 

This class will give students an understanding of the theoretical and practical concerns involved in creating a geographic information system (GIS) map including the use of global positioning systems (GPS). The application of this tool to documenting the presence and extent of natural resources, planning for their use, and management decisions which can be based on the information provided will be covered. Students will become familiar with software used to create GIS maps by creating one themselves as a class project.

 

Prerequisites: None

Offered: Spring

Instructor: Carlos Portillo-Quintero (carlos.portillo@ttu.edu)

 

2) NRM 4403 Aerial Photo Interpretation in Natural Resource Management

 

Students will learn the principles of photogrammetry or interpretation of aerial photos. Aerial photographs are used in identification and quantification of habitat types when assessing management questions and often form the basis for layers in geographic information system (GIS) maps. Students will get experience with GIS software and learn a variety of techniques including the use of global positioning systems to normalize aerial photos. Application of these techniques to management of renewable natural resources will be emphasized. [Non-credit Lab Required]

3) NRM 6303 Imagery Interpretation in Natural Resources Management

 

An advanced course in the applications of imagery producing systems for use in the inventory, analysis, planning, and management of natural resources. Involves the use of satellite imagery, infrared and radar scanning systems, as well as advanced work in interpreting standard aerial photography.

 

Prerequisites: None

Offered: Fall

4) NRM 6305 Geospatial analysis in Natural Resources Management

 

Principles of geographic information systems and global positioning systems. Applications for natural resource inventory, planning, and management are emphasized

 

Prerequisites: None

Offered: Spring

​Instructor: Carlos Portillo-Quintero (carlos.portillo@ttu.edu)

 

5) NRM 4303 Aerial Terrain analysis

 

Exploration of methods, the utilization of techniques, and evaluation of landscape using aerial photographs. An introduction to the theories, technical and practical aspects, and considerations of computer based geographic information systems in landscape planning, design, and management

 

Prerequisites: None
