Final exam cont l.jpg
Final Exam - cont.

  • Major Concepts

    • Some terms: SQL, ecological fallacy, mixel, spatial autocorrelation

    • Spatial analysis (lec. 11-12), 3-D, UCGIS research priorities, guest lectures

    • Distinguishing characteristics of GIS

    • Topology - the “diagram” may appear again

    • Object vs. field, vector vs. raster

    • Future of GIS

  • “Nasties”

    • Resolution of grid

    • GIS queries as part of an analysis step

Where to go from here l.jpg
Where to Go From Here

  • Keep reading the geography/GIS literature and surfing the web

  • ArcUser, ArcNews, workbooks (GIS Tutorial, etc.)

  • Get an internship or research project

  • Go to conferences, workshops

Recap l.jpg

  • *this class was about theory, basic, fundamental concepts, SOME hands-on

    • based on a national curriculum

  • CONCEPTS - data model, data structure, topology, data compilation, process, analysis

    • What role does space have as a source for explanation & understanding?

  • TECHNIQUES - overlay, buffer, map algebra, interpolation

  • TOOLS - labs

Gisystems giscience and gistudies l.jpg
GISystems, GIScience and GIStudies




Giscience gisystems and gistudies l.jpg
GIScience, GISystems and GIStudies

  • GIScience – fundamental scientific issues arising from the use of GISystems (concepts, techniques)

  • GISystems – implement the storehouse of GIScience knowledge (tools, techniques)

  • GIStudies – how systems and science are embedded in a societal context

Why speculate on the future l.jpg
Why speculate on the future?

  • May get something right!

  • Most of tomorrow’s systems are under development now. (UCGIS)

  • Some of tomorrow’s systems already exist, but are not diffused through the hierarchy of potential users.

  • Prepare for new hardware and software

Grand challenges in giscience l.jpg
Grand Challenges in GIScience?? Knowledge”

  • Finish Digital Earth by 2015!

  • Create digital simulations of geographic phenomena indistinguishable from real counterparts!

  • Map or visualize all uncertainties!

  • Find all appropriate data no matter how hidden!

Grand challenges in giscience21 l.jpg
Grand Challenges in GIScience?? Knowledge”

  • What is the cost to the nation of geographic information that is inaccurate, overaccurate or out-of-date?

  • What role can geographic technologies play in eliminating geographic illiteracy?

  • In what ways have we yet to exploit the superiority of digital maps over paper maps?

  • By how much can effective use of geographic information improve human safety and welfare while reducing the associated costs?

Societal Issue: geography.”Democratic Access

  • Open and democratic access to geospatial data is now possible!

  • Are the policies and funding in place to support this?

  • Otherwise real danger of major disenfranchisement

    • the right and the need to access these data.

  • Information haves and have nots.
