Geographic Information Science and Spatial Reasoning, Fall 2017
This is an introductory course on GIScience with a substantial computational aspect. While there is no formal lab session for this course, students are assigned five practical exercises with freely available GIS tools to enable hands-on experience with the problem-solving aspects of GIS.
Map Projections Teaching Tool: Tissot’s Indicatrix
I designed this tool to help teach map projections using Tissot’s Indicatrices. My goal was to give students the ability to interact with online maps that would show how the preservation of shape, area, distance, and/or direction vary according to map projection. Students also learn to differentiate between cylindrical, conical, and azimuthal projections.
