Transcript

  • 1. National Geographic FieldScope Annie Evans Virginia Geographic Alliance
  • 2. Page 2 Overview of Session  Introductions – What is GIS?  What is citizen science?  What is FieldScope?  What is geo-reasoning?  How can I get my students involved?
  • 3. Page 3 What is GIS?  Key Features: • “layers” of information - all geo-referenced • Shape, line, point files • Ability to make queries
  • 4. Page 4 What is citizen science?  Voluntary collection of data to contribute to a larger cause, question, or database.  Examples:
  • 5. Page 5 What is FieldScope?  A GIS- and web-based platform for exploring citizen science data  Highlights – Learner Friendly – New data is being added all the time (it’s alive!)
  • 6. Page 6 What is geo-reasoning?  Decision Making – Geographic (location, transportation) – Far-reaching (remote consequences)  Systems Thinking – Human systems – Environmental systems – Human-environment interactions Source: Daniel Edelson, VP Education, NGEP
  • 7. Page 7 FieldScope and geo-reasoning  Geographic Decision Making
  • 8. Page 8 Human Systems
  • 9. Page 9 Environmental Systems
  • 10. Page 10 Human-Environment Interactions
  • 11. Page 11 Far-reaching Decisions
  • 12. Page 12 How can I get my students involved?  Get involved with a citizen science organization that is using FieldScope – FrogWatch USA – Project BudBurst – Trash Free Potomac Watershed – Nature Bridge – Olympic National Park – BioBlitz 2013 in New Orleans  Stay tuned for “project builder” tools… – For updates check www.natgeoed.org/fieldscope  Use FieldScope to explore issues as we just did! – Civic Engagement meets Citizen Science with GIS
  • 13. Page 13 Going Deeper  Which FieldScope project do you want to dive into more deeply? – VGA /NOAA  How can you see using it with your students?
