This course focuses on researching and representing ecological systems and phenomena, with a concern for how visualization practices can reveal and synthesize complex social, political, and environmental relationships.

Exploring a variety of drawing, diagramming, mapping, and image-based tools and techniques, we will develop expressive and process-rich visual practices at multiple scales, with particular attention to integrating quantitative and qualitative approaches. Students will emerge from this course with an expanded range of techniques and methods for understanding, investigating, intervening in, and communicating dynamic systematic interrelationships.

Eligibility: This is the Technical Methods seminar for the Ecological Practices graduate research group.  Open to others, however seating priority is given to students that are required to take this course.
