  • 1. Using Remote Access to Teach GIS Virtually in Enterprise Network Vince DiNoto – co-PI vince.dinoto@kctcs.edu Phil Davis – PI pdavis@delmar.edu Funded by National Science Foundation DUE 0801893 1
  • 2. National Geospatial Technology Center of Excellence Empowering colleges to expand the geospatial workforce. Vince DiNoto – co-PI vince.dinoto@kctcs.edu Phil Davis – PI pdavis@delmar.edu Funded by National Science Foundation DUE 0801893 2
  • 3. Spatial Thinking vs. Jobs •What are the educational requirements? •Where are the jobs? •What are the tasks? •What is spatial literacy? 3
  • 4. What is the GeoTech Center • An NSF funded ATE National Center of Excellence • Single point of contact for two year colleges • A Geospatial curriculum repository • A data warehouse (data, static maps, dynamic maps) • A best practice in Geospatial 4
  • 5. GeoTech Center Players 5
  • 6. GIS Institutions 6
  • 7. Problem 1 • How do you teach GIS which requires specialized software? ▫ On campus ▫ Hybrid ▫ Virtually 7
  • 8. Reason an Issue • Requires a Community College student be on Campus for assignments • Reduces content which can be covered in a class to give time for laboratory experience • Software (with expirations) installation problems took more time explaining to students how to install, instead of teaching content 8
  • 9. Attempts at Solutions • Using ArcIMS and web application on IMS Server ▫ Limited GIS, for the higher end required the installing of a plug-in that was not easy to do, difficult to set-up IMS box • Google Earth ▫ Limited GIS and data must be KML format • ArcGIS Explorer ▫ Still limits GIS, but can add layer files 9
  • 10. Solution 1 • Develop a web based terminal server at a low cost ▫ JCTC Professional IT staff ▫ No software to install ▫ Full functional version of ArcGIS 9.3.1 ▫ Patch single copy as updates needed ▫ Other software the students might need to complete the course ▫ Useful for all students not just virtual learners ▫ Meets license requirements (still uses license server) 10
  • 11. Solution – on a virtual server 11
  • 12. Requires a secure AD login 12
  • 13. Multiple software applications on the same machine 13
  • 14. Clipboard available as are local drives 14
  • 15. Second level of security 15
  • 16. Complete version of ArcMap (ArcInfo) 16
  • 17. Problem 2 • Student spend a large amount of time finding base map information and files ▫ Providing Base maps for student application via the web  Eliminate many geo-projection issues ▫ Provide a student repository for zipped files ▫ Provide a shapefile library using geography, seen as a drive letter by students 17
  • 18. Solution 2 • Develop Web base maps using an ArcGIS Server – geo image file • Develop a SAN mass storage device accessible within the college network, Terminal server is within the network even though the student accesses it outside of the network • Develop a website to download content that is simple to navigate 18
  • 19. Solution 2 19
  • 20. Connecting to ArcGIS Server 20
  • 21. Web Base Map 21
  • 22. Shapefile Storage 22
  • 23. Storage Server Base Map 23
  • 24. Zipped Files 24
  • 25. Contacting Us • Vince DiNoto • vince.dinoto@kctcs.edu • 502-213-7280 • Phil Davis • pdavis@delmar.edu • 361-698-1476 25
  • 26. Resources • GeoTech Center http://geotechcenter.org • Geospatial Information @ Jefferson http://tinyurl.com/jctcgis • State Data @ Jefferson http://tinyurl.com/gis-state-data • Basemaps for use in ArcMap – must attach to the ArcGIS server 216.69.2.35/arcgis/server 26
