ESCI 3001K - Land Use and Conservation

The quality of our environment depends upon the development which is permitted to take place and the controls which direct that development. Therefore, the purpose of this course is to provide an understanding of how land use controls may be used to effectively shape development at the watershed scale. This course will introduce the student to the fundamentals of land use with an emphasis on conservation of natural resources through the use of field descriptions, design, and analytical techniques with intent to optimize land use patterns. Extensive integration of GIS to landscape management principles will be emphasized.
