GIS4930 Special Topics in GIS - Student Spotlight

GIS4930 Special Topics in GIS, Instructor, Mrs. Amber Bloechle and Ms. Deidra Krolikowski

Module 2 - Web Applications in Mountaintop Removal


Lab Description:
Over the course of four weeks, students created hydrology datasets from DEMs, used unsupervised classification to determine areas of mountaintop removal and change in MTR area over time, and worked in groups to cover the entire study area. They completed this module by compiling data within their groups and presenting their final analysis in an ArcGIS Online map and their overall report as a Story Map Journal, incorporating maps and products from all weeks of the module.

Student Learning Outcomes:
  • Use ArcGIS Explorer Online to modify maps and create your own interactive web presentations for public.
  • Embed an interactive map on a blog or other website to share with the public.
  • Research web maps and techniques used to present geographical data.
  • Create and share a web map using acquired and created data through ArcGIS Online.
  • Summarize key processes completed for Prepare and Analyze weeks, including any issues encountered along the way. 
  • Use ArcGIS Explorer Online to modify maps and create your own interactive web presentations for public.
  • Embed an interactive map on a blog or other website to share with the public. 
  • Summarize key processes completed for Prepare and Analyze weeks, including any issues encountered along the way. 
  • Self-assess comprehension of key concepts with regards to spatial analysis techniques presented and methods utilized in this module. 
  • Work with classmates and instructor via online discussion boards and scheduled elluminate sessions to meet common goals. 
    And the STUDENT SPOTLIGHT AWARD goes to...

    Natalie Gusack and Gary Crowe! Both Natalie and Gary created Journal Maps that are very detailed. They introduce the reader to why MTR is something to be aware of, moving onto their study areas, analysis performed, and discussion of their results in a logical manner that clearly communicates and displays their results. Included in their Journal Maps are a Story Map tour and an ArcGIS Online Map. Both Natalie and Gary produced a final result that is both informative and aesthetically pleasing. Congratulations Natalie and Gary!
