Community College Program Map – the Geodatabase Mike Rudibaugh Geography/GIS Instructor Lake Land College
Vision Demonstrate the power of geospatial technology by example – The GeoTech Center will use geospatial technology to visualize and analyze data about community college geospatial programs and the impact of the activities from the GeoTech Center using an online, interactive map. Community College Programs GeoTech Center Project Impact University Program Map ATE Center Project Maps

Scanning the Geospatial Landscape - Community College Map Research Database Map Information How Data Were Developed Data Layers Developed ATE Centers ATE Projects Community Colleges (Classifed by how GST is offered, if at all, at the college) Degree-Certificate, Degree, Certificate, Classes, None Faculty Name (contact information i.e., e-mail and phone) Metropolitan Areas (rural vs. urban comparison) Congressional Districts Counties States GIS work-study students from LLC’s GIS program researched and developed the community college layer Brooke Ferguson, LLC’s GIS Specialist, integrated the layers into a common geodatabase
Scanning the GST Landscape Using the National Map Research Database Sammy Tyner - GIS Work-study Student researching community college GST program information Cody Stewart - GIS Work-study student and Brooke Ferguson, LLC’s GIS Specialist, for the GeoTech Grant
Target Audience GeoDatabase in ArcGIS (LLC) FLEX Viewer (KCTC) Users – Researchers and Evaluators Users- GIS Educators
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
National Snapshot of Energy Programs at Community Colleges?
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)
College Program Research Database -Regional Patterns Associated to Closest Partner Using thiessen polygons to assign each college to closest GeoTech Partner
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.
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
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
Anticipated Impact Increase or elevate user interest in GeoTech Website Link existing NSF-ATE user community together through mapping other high profile STEM areas Demonstrate the use of geospatial analysis in evaluating project impact, evaluation and outreach Identify colleges needing mentoring or support Can this data be used to be generate revenue?
