Geospatial Technology Project Management

Course Description

In GEOG 871, we'll take a critical look at geospatial project management. Project management is a broad discipline that encompasses technical methods such as system design and analysis and also interpersonal factors that affect professional relationships. Project management is also a discipline that has matured outside of, but can be incorporated into, geospatial technology. By the end of this course, you'll have devised a project plan from a scenario built upon a real-life project involving the city of Metropolis geodatabase. We'll work through each of the components in an organized and logical manner and will incorporate constructive peer review to help everyone achieve the best product possible.

This course is part of the following programs: Master of Professional Studies in Homeland Security and Masters of Geographic Information Systems.

A little about my background. I have a bachelor's degree in geology, a master's degree in geophysics, and a Ph.D. in geography. Additionally, I have twelve years of work experience in industry, state government, and consulting. Five of those years I was a GIS manager or project manager. I am currently a Professor of Geography at Long Island University in New York, and a Visiting Professor of Geography at Penn State University. On the home-front, life is also busy and exciting. My wife Sharon is the executive director of a regional theater in our town of Port Washington. Our three children -Ethan, Jamie, and Ryan - help to ensure that we never get bored. We like to take advantage of all that Long Island has to offer, especially the beautiful beaches and the nearby grandparents!
