2 GEO 580 Advanced Applications of GIS in the Geosciences Monday/Wednesday 6:00 – 7:20 p.m. Wilkinson credits

3 Dawn Wright twitter.com/deepseadawn Office Hours: Mondays/Wednesdays 114 Wilkinson Hall 1:50- 2:50 p.m. TA

4 Course Web Site GEO 580 Discussion Board Sign-up and Web

5 Required Textbook Geographic Information Systems and Science by Longley, Goodchild, Maguire, Rhind, 3rd edition

6 Designing Geodatabases by Michael Zeiller Arc Marine: GIS for a Blue Planet by Wright et al. Modeling Our World by Zeiler Optional

7 Required Project - 2 options Option 1 - LABS –Tuesday labs in ArcGIS – ArcGIS data models, spatial analysis, networks, surfaces, digitizing, metadata –Take FINAL exam Option 2 - analytical project –apply course concepts to your own project (thesis or dissertation) –Completion of Labs 1-3 is still required –poster or web site, page paper, and min. presentation during Dead Week –No FINAL

8 Milestones Option choices – April 8th Required intro. exercise on ArcGIS data model schema - due date April 27th Mid-Term exam – April 27th Final exam – June 6th, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

9 Grading Option 1: –Mid-Term - 30% –Final - 30% –Labs 1-6 & Data Model - 40% Option 2: –Mid-Term - 30% –Labs 1-3 & Data Model - 20% –Project - 50%

10 What Will You Learn? { see learning outcomes on syllabus } Theoretical –broaden base of GIS theory established in GEO 465/565 –build entry points into GIS research literature –cover sets of topics in GIS research & practice, with a focus on the geosciences / coastal & marine sciences

11 What Will You Learn? Theoretical –consider expanded capabilities of GIS in more detail and relate them to YOUR current work –rethink the characteristics of spatial data, of spatial analysis procedures –all about putting technology to work EFFECTIVELY

12 What Will You Learn? Technical –Broaden knowledge of ArcGIS –Apply GIS methods to problem-solving / project completion –Work toward professional level GIS skills

13 GISystems, GIScience and GIStudies GISystems GIStudiesGIScience

14 GISystems, GIScience and GIStudies GISystems (GIS) –Emphasis on technology and tools –“GIServices” –Implements storehouse of GISci knowledge GIScience (GISci) –Fundamental issues raised by the use of GIS and related technologies (e.g.) Spatial analysis Map projections Accuracy Scientific visualization –Systematic study of the use of geographic information GIStudies (GISt?) –how systems and science are embedded in a societal context, applications

15 G. I. S. ? Geographic Illusionary System GRASS Interpolates Sushi Gastro- Intestinal Sophistication Geometrically Increasing Silliness Going In Style Gee, I'm Spatial!

16 Survival Skills Follow lecture material Proficiency in Windows, ArcGIS, and HTML Save early - save often Lab notebook (“cookbook”) approach Build self-help capability while also sharing resources, working in groups

17 Opportunities ESRI User Conference. Every year in San Diego. July Student assistantships, regional meetings as well ESRI Recruiting See card on bulletin board next to my office  GIS in Action Conference Today and tomorrow!  Other opportunities posted to
