    Users – Researchers and Evaluators
    Users- GIS Educators
  • 8. Expanding the Online Maps
    Examples demonstrating how geodatabase or other Maps could be used by different users groups in addressing issues associated with geospatial education
  • 9. National Snapshot of Energy Programs at Community Colleges?
  • 10. Scanning the GST Landscape Using the College Program Research Database
    Scanning the System (2009)
    N= 1185 (Community Colleges in GeoTech Center geodatabase
    Program Map Tier System
    1= NO GST (N=733)
    2 = Class (N = 287)
    3 = Certificates (N = 96)
    4 = Degrees (N = 19)
    5 = Degrees and Certificates (N = 50)
  • 11. College Program Research Database -Regional Patterns Associated to Closest Partner
    Using thiessen polygons to assign each college to closest GeoTech Partner
  • 12. Using the Program Research Database to findRegional Patterns
    The following table profiles how GST is offered at CCs in different regions of the country around GeoTech Partner
    Analysis - the West region is the most mature based on the fact it’s the only region with a higher frequency of colleges that have some GST versus none.
  • 13. Using the Program Map Research Database inArcGIS Business Analyst
    Top five clusters of colleges with no geospatial programs.
    Use to target colleges and partners in need of mentoring
  • 14. Using the Program Map Research Database inArcGIS Business Analyst
    Location of College with Certificate or Degree (N=165) in relation to Metro Areas
    • Suggests only 41 of the 165 colleges having Certificates or Degrees are located outside of Metro Areas
    Suggest geospatial education not developed at community colleges serving rural areas
