Geography GIS Training April 2012

1 05 2012

Sarah and Milly from Orielton attended a meeting of FSC staff with Dave Holmes to share and absorb new skills in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and how we can use them more effectively in our teaching in FSC Centres. It was a really good day where our laptops buzzed with new information and online GIS activities. We discovered new websites that are easy access for all, as well as being amazed by some of the FSC staff who have created their own programmes to display visualizations of student data in Google Earth! My personal favourite website is attached below. CASA bike share map managed by UCL, pretty geeky but this amazed me as it is real live data and GIS happening in front of your eyes….try the time-lapse function….cool! So…watch out for some new wave GIS action in an FSC centre near you!
