The GIS projects that we will work on this year are varied to demonstrate the power of spatial analysis and of mapping. We will not be collecting and publishing personal data. After each research project, web publishing students will publish a presentation, website, web map or a storymap App that displays their study. Student will use responsive designs to allow their electronic media to be displayed on a variety of electronic devices such as on screen display, tables, android and apple phones.
