Geography CC
GEO 1 Intro to Physical Geography 3.00 Units
Earth's natural environments, with emphasis on spatial characteristics, change over time, interactions between environmental components, and human-environment interactions. Physical processes, techniques, and tools by which Earth's climates soils, vegetation, water resources, and land forms are linked into integrated global patterns. Effect of natural environments on human activities and how modify environments. Field trips may be included.
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 1L Intro to Phys Geog Laboratory 1.00 Unit
Application of the concepts, techniques, tools, and materials of physical geography. Practical exercises, experiments, observations, data analyses, and computer applications/simulations which augment understanding of geographic processes, interrelationships, spatial patterns and distributions. Use of maps, remotely-sensed imagery, and geographic information systems. Includes locational reference systems, time-space relationships, weather, climate, soils, vegetation, and landforms. Field trips/field projects may be included. Prerequisite: GEO 1 may be taken concurrently
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 2 Cultural Geography 3.00 Units
Spatial analysis of human populations, their cultural traits, and activities. Emphasis on how diverse peoples, through their interactions and through their perceptions and use of the physical environment, create distinctive cultural landscapes. Social, political, and economic elements of geography which contribute to the evolution of these global and regional cultural patterns. Field trips may be included.
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 5 World Regional Geography 3.00 Units
Regions of the world and the way humans live within those regions. Includes physical and cultural characteristics of world regions, how they are similar and how they are different, economic patterns, agriculture, industrial development and population dynamics. Emphasis on contemporary major issues and their geographic impact.
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 10 Global Environmental Problems 3.00 Units
Essential concepts of the interaction between human activities and the changing global environment, with emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach.
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 12 Geography of California 3.00 Units
California's physical, cultural, and regional elements. The physical geographic base includes: location, geologic history, geomorphic provinces, natural hazards and resources, climate, water resources, vegetation, and soils. Historically developed cultural themes include: Native American and Hispanic origins, migration patterns, settlements, population growth, ethnic diversity, land use, economic activities, and Pacific Rim connections. Human-environment interactions and issues are considered throughout the course. Field trips may be included.
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 20 Intro to Geog Info Sys (GIS) 3.00 Units
Computer-based information technology tools and techniques that analyze spatial relationships between locations and attributes of physical, cultural, and economic features. Visualization of geographic relationships to support decision-making through interactive linkages of maps, databases, images, and charts. Introduction to GIS theory, principles, concepts, applications, and operations. Field trips may be required. Strongly Recommended: previous PC experience
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 21 Spatial Analysis with GIS 3.00 Units
GIS facilitates visualization of spatial relationships and decision-making by means of interactive linkages between vector and raster data formats. Addresses real-world application of GIS principles, industry-standard software tools and quantitative techniques to multi-layered thematic data. Students will acquire advanced hands-on GIS experience in managing, editing, merging, intersecting, and statistically analyzing spatial data from many diverse sources, and in preparing high-quality cartographic presentations. Field trips may be required. Prerequisite: GEO 20 (completed with a grade of "C" or higher)
College: Chabot College
Division: Social Sciences
 
GEO 22 Advanced GIS Applications 3.00 Units
Practical, hands-on survey of some of the more advanced applications of GIS, integrating vector, grid, and digital image data formats. Emphasizes environmental applications of GIS industry-standard software tools to analyze spatial problems quantitatively, including network analysis, watershed modeling, digital elevation modeling, digital image processing, and digital rectification of multi-layered thematic data. Includes integration of Global Positioning System (GPS) operational characteristics, collection and interfacing GPS data with GIS. Field trips may be required. Prerequisite: GEO 20 (completed with a grade of "C" or higher)
