Basic understanding of intellectual property rights.

Geospatial technologies collect, analyze, display, and disseminate

increasing volumes of spatial data at finer and finer resolutions. This

course focuses on the legal and social aspects associated with the proper handling of personal spatial data in a GIS. Topics include the discussion of standards to protect the individual privacy versus the public´s right to know, geographic masking versus inverse address-matching, and the effect that masked or aggregated information, in contrast to individual, level information, has on spatial modeling and visualization.

The course also examines the way that the law helps protect and exploit spatial technologies and how it tries to handle conflicting interests.
