Student Output from GEOG 591 "Practical GIS", Fall 2013



As in Fall 2012, Fall 2013's section of GEOG 591 was taught as "Practical GIS" with no prerequisites except general familiarity with Windows and file management. Some of the students had previous coursework in GIScience, but others had no GIS experience at all, and were starting from scratch.

These posters represent the culmination of the independent projects they did after a semester of hands-on labs. The project topics were entirely up to the students and many used the opportunity to apply GIS to their honors thesis or graduate research topics. Each student worked out her/his own topic, acquired the needed data, did all data manipulation, analysis, cartography, and poster design.
