Understand the fundamental concepts of geographic information, and use those concepts to explain the core data models and procedures of GIS.
Obtain existing GIS data and create new data that are appropriate for a given need, and transform data sets to make them appropriate for a given project, using tools such as format conversion, reprojection, and reclassification.
Perform common and novel GIS analysis procedures to solve practical geographic tasks.
Learn new concepts and technologies as needed to solve novel GIS management problems, with minimal supervision, using a variety of information resources.
