Students in the GIS minor have
an opportunity to learn more about geographic information systems
through the Urban Coast Institute (UCI), one of MU's Centers of Distinction
located on the Monmouth campus, which looks closely at important issues and
problems affecting the health and safety of our environment. With
skills learned through the minor, GIS users can better understand how
UCI approaches such functions as research design, testing,
data collection, and map design. For more on this center, check out the Web site.
