Review of the Spatial Reserves Exercises

September 26, 2017 Leave a comment

We’re currently reviewing the exercises that were developed to illustrate some of the issues discussed in the GIS Guide to Public Domain Data publication and here on the Spatial Reserves blog, with the intention of releasing an updated set of exercises next year. The proposed style and format of the updated exercises is the subject of my dissertation as part of a M.Sc. in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh.

Here’s where you can help …  I’m looking for volunteers to review a presentation on two exercises and complete four short questionnaires. This should only take 10-15 minutes of your time.

The study is available at Digital Education – Multi-media study

Thanks in advance,

Jill C.

Updated Public Domain Data Exercises

January 13, 2016 3 comments

When the GIS Guide to Public Domain Data was published in 2012, we produced an accompanying set of exercises to help illustrate some of the issues that could be encountered when locating, manipulating and analysing public domain spatial data. Among the issues we discussed were the problems of data sources disappearing or data portals that were no longer maintained.

As a number of the online resources we used for the original exercises have not been immune to such changes, we have updated the exercises to provide modified or alternate data resources for the activities. The new exercises and the answer key (.doc format) are available to download from Google Drive (no password required).
