Remote Applications Gis Oct 2009 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Supporting Remote Application Access Through Virtualization Services Vince DiNoto – co-PI [email_address] Phil Davis – PI [email_address] Funded by National Science Foundation DUE 0801893
  • 2. National Geospatial Technology Center of Excellence Empowering colleges to expand the geospatial workforce. Vince DiNoto – co-PI [email_address] Phil Davis – PI [email_address] Funded by National Science Foundation DUE 0801893
  • 3. Spatial Thinking vs. Jobs
    • What are the educational requirements?
    • Where are the jobs?
    • What are the tasks?
    • What is spatial literacy?
  • 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
  • 5. GeoTech Center Players
  • 6. GIS Institutions
  • 7. Problem 1
    • How do you teach GIS which requires specialized software?
      • On campus
      • Hybrid
      • Virtually
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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)
  • 11. Solution – on a virtual server
  • 12. Requires a secure AD login
  • 13. Multiple software applications on the same machine
  • 14. Clipboard available as are local drives
  • 15. Second level of security
  • 16. Complete version of ArcMap (ArcInfo)
  • 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
  • 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
  • 19. Solution 2
  • 20. Connecting to ArcGIS Server
  • 21. Web Base Map
  • 22. Shapefile Storage
  • 23. Storage Server Base Map
  • 24. Zipped Files
  • 25. Contacting Us
