Course Description

Food security is defined as a household’s availability to healthy food that is consistently accessible in order to sustain an active and healthy lifestyle.  This security is threatened on a community and global level by three important factors; the access and availability of food in local environments, the effects of the changing climate on agriculture and natural resources, and the active participation in planning, developing, and managing effective strategies to optimize and sustain food production with the available existing land.  Several strategies have been developed using Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing techniques, which contribute knowledge and understanding to food security. These strategies include techniques which examine local food environments, assess changes in land use and land cover, identify areas of importance in specific regions to determine the relationships between biophysical and socioeconomic attributes, and the use of 3D models to demonstrate landscape and construct methods to sustain our food sources.  GIS and Remote Sensing play significant roles in securing the future of our food production and our population.  The importance of food security is directly linked to increases in population density, limitations on agriculture yields, and the spread of ‘food deserts.
