For the final exam, I want you to prepare four typed theme papers,
each not more than two pages in length. The four theme papers should be
chosen from the following seven subject areas.

Apr 2) and Remote Sensing (Melba Crawford, Thurs
Papers: Surface and Subsurface Representation

In considering your theme papers, please take account of the following
issues. I am especially interested in your overall assessment of the
use of GIS technology in this subject area.
- Goal of the Analysis
- Source of the Data
- How the data are converted for GIS use
- Analysis of the data in GIS
- Brief description of an example application
- Technology Assessment: advantages and limitations of the approach
Please turn in your completed exam by 5PM on Weds, May 13, to the secretary
in the ECJ 8.6 office, or in the box outside my office door in ECJ 8.6.
It should be understood that these theme papers represent your work alone
and their contents should not be discussed with other students in the class.
I would like to make a copy of your term paper and store it in
my Term Paper Library so that future students can see your work and learn
from what you did. If you have any objections to my doing that, please
let me know.
Contact me if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
