Also, I am going to throw in an extra credit opportunity. You will be offered a chance to improve your grade, by writing a paper on Geographic Information Systems (GIS). You will be able to write one and get credit for up to ten points. It must be single spaced, full of pertinent information and have substantive information that is cited properly. You will get a point for each page you fill, writing about GIS. (Just so you know, that is what I do for a living, and know it pretty well, so I will be able to understand where your information comes. Now, don’t let that scare you, since I would love to have all of you learn about GIS. Go learn about it, write about it, and get some extra credit points in the process.
