Summary and Final Tasks


This week, we have explored the 9.28.2018 Sulawesi Earthquake and Tsunami and the many ways in which geospatial approaches were used to respond and recover from this disaster. The magnitude of the disaster means that for the next several years, GIS and related technologies will continue to have a role in the long-term recovery of the region, and we can already see in subsequent disasters (like the many USA storms in 2018) that the expectations for GIS outputs continue to evolve at a rapid pace.

Next, we will begin the final lesson for this course. We will devote our attention to the term projects you have been working on throughout the semester. You will submit your final term project assignment materials and participate in a mini-conference to share your findings with your classmates.

Reminder - Complete all of the Lesson 9 tasks!

You have reached the end of Lesson 9! Double-check the to-do list on the Lesson 9 Overview page to make sure you have completed all of the activities listed there before you begin Lesson 10.
