Dear GIS Enthusiasts,

Sorry for any cross-posting on lists.

Thanks to those who have already submitted a statement of interest and/or full proposal for the Spring quarter offering of Geography's GIS Workshop capstone course. There is still plenty of time and opportunity to participate to submit a statement of interest and/or full proposal as per the attached guidelines.

Please distribute this email with attachments as you see fit.

The GIS Workshop is a quarter-long capstone course for mostly undergraduate
geography seniors. The capstone course is an integrative technical and social experience in GIS project development applied to a community-oriented GIS project. Groups of two or three students work with teaching assistants and project partners to complete GIS projects.

The course has hosted and conducted many dozens of successful projects over the past two decades in the spring of each year. Most successful projects have some form of data management, analysis, and/or visualization component. That is, large data collection projects tend to be less successful from a students perspective, but if they involve analysis all the better. Project scope should be commensurate with a one-quarter work effort for a small group. Project completion within one quarter is expected. Students principally use Esri software, but open source software can be used, as appropriate to a project and student expertise.

Attached are templates for statement of interest and/or project proposals.
You choose what level of documentation you would like to provide now. Statements of interest are due by mid-February and project proposals by early March.

best regards,
Tim Nyerges
