Technological Advance May Yield New Course Offering

Stevie Henry from the Eastern Caribbean Center, right, demonstrates the Geographic Information System (GIS) at St. Thomas Dining Pavillion Nov. 25 to Paul Jobsis, left. Henry says the demonstration was meant to call attention to the different uses of geospatial technology and to let students know about a new course offering being developed around the GIS. No formal title has been assigned to the class yet but the subject, he said, will be geospatial technology and geographic inquiry. Henry said the course is intended to benefit students from different fields of study and is expected to be offered in the coming fall semester.
