A new school will be launched at Bowling Green State University in Ohio from the merging of the departments of geology and geography and the Center for Environmental Studies. The School of Earth, Environment and Society. The final paper work should be completed in May.
The new organization may help grow GIS:
both the geography and geology departments offer a course in Geographic Information System, a computer system used for managing and analyzing different types of geographic data.
With the new school, students can take a single GIS course. This also provides the possibility of higher level GIS courses to be developed based off of the initial course.
