Research Assignment


Since you should be focusing much of your attention on finishing your final project, I've made this week's assignment fairly easy.

Research Assignment

I'd like each of you to search for two examples of tools or methods you think would be particularly useful for evaluating a GIS system, and post what you find in the Lesson 9 Research Discussion in Canvas along with source information (a link is fine). For each example, provide a concise explanation of the content (2-3 sentences, tops). These examples might be interactive tools, example applications of evaluation methods we have covered already in this lesson, or new methods we have not yet specifically covered in this lesson. Please post a graphic from what you find, if one is available (and appropriate).

There are literally dozens of possible examples, so if someone has already posted one that you wanted to post, keep looking! The goal here is to develop a nice collection that reflects the many ways in which you can evaluate a GIS system.

Grading Criteria

This assignment is worth 5 points toward your Class Participation grade.
