7 GPS Screenshots

8 Types of GPS Data: Tracks and Waypoints

9 And Routes

10 DEMO Downloading GPS Data into a GIS

12 Accuracy and Metadata

13 Metadata (Continued)

14 North American Profile

15 Borrowing Agreement

16 Conclusion A GPS unit is an economical way for libraries to collect data or lend to students to collect data Can offer data of teaching or classroom quality Lower end units cannot support research quality I have questions about libraries role to act as a repository of crowd sourced data. I have a question about whether it is a Librarians role to proactively create geospatial data It does provide access to a useful mobile technology that will support the universities teaching mission
