Old School Field GIS

Every now and then, old school bubbles to the surface as the preferred way.  Who could argue with this Integrated Environmental Planning Instructor that his paper maps taped to a van aren’t effective and engaging?

Students loved them.

Right now first year IEP students are in field school.  Last week we went far beyond paper maps taped to vans; we looked at and discussed lots of things like snow, water, development, LEED, trails, people, values, planning, environment, site characteristics and applying GIS to much of it.

What a great week and amazing way to end the semester.  Happy Summer everyone!

IEP 270 Midterm goodness

In our Integrated Environmental Planning program here at Selkirk, students take one GIS course in their first year, and two courses in their second year.

I have to share some of the midterm map goodness that was produced in their second GIS course, ever.  These were generated during a grueling 3 hour exam.

How can an instructor not be super proud?
