My recent and future work with GIS and how it will contribute to the School of Geography at Plymouth Dr. John Lee
Or…… John, GIS and Joining Geography!
Introduction How I use GIS Recent work with GIS Research Teaching Future work with GIS Research Teaching Benefits to Plymouth Conclusion
How I Use GIS - My Manifesto!
Recent Work - Research Deciduous woodland Deciduous woodland Unimproved chalk grassland Unimproved chalk grassland Arable land Woodland or grassland? CONVERSION? Spatial Conflict Resolution
Recent Work - Research Current land useDesirable land use change, with qualifications Improved grassland a) If close to unimproved grassland: 1.convert to unimproved grassland; or 2.keep as improved grass to provide for stock on unimproved grass. b) If close to deciduous woodland: 1.convert to woodland; or 2.convert to scrub. c) If close to scrub: 1.convert to scrub; or 2.convert to unimproved grassland or woodland. Spatial Conflict Resolution

Future Work - Research Papers from recently completed projects. Data access and manipulation – NERC Spatial decision-making – English Nature Amateur cartography – Royal Society Visual ontologies for cartography – OS
Future Work - Teaching GIS as theory and practice Promoting open source GIS solutions. Modular GIS development - web services. Distributed computing solutions to GIS. Geomorphological mapping. Informed by on-going research.
Benefits to Plymouth Contribution to RAE Supervision - PhDs, MSc, BSc. Teaching – PGs and UGs. Interdisciplinary. New skills and interests. Networking.
