Esri Global Content Challenge! http://go.esri.com/content-challenge
Esri is challenging students all over the world to unleash the power of Esri content by way of their own geographic analyses, visualizations, predictive models and more to tell a compelling scientific story. The story must be presented using the Esri Story Map Journal app. We’ll point you to the best of our data and our map journal tips and tricks. You do the rest! Judges will select the best map journals to be awarded prizes. Esri will also share the winning Map Journals on our Collaborative Resource Portal and feature them at Esri’s Federal GIS and Education User Conferences, and Young Professionals Network events.
Esri’s Global Content Challenge is open to undergraduate or graduate students at colleges or universities, as well as U.S. high school students enrolled in an Advanced Placement Human Geography or Environmental Science course. Get creative by using Esri’s land, ocean, and population premium content libraries to tell compelling stories that bring about understanding and action.
Eight E&ES 344 Advanced GIS students presented posters at the Northeast Arc Users Group Spring Spatial Technologies Conference, May 9, University of Massachusetts Amherst. The posters highlighted the students’ semester-long research and service-learning projects incorporating applications of advanced geographic information systems skills. Titles and abstracts for the posters can be found at http://nearc.sites.amherst.edu/program2016/. Stephanie Ling (’16) won the poster contest with her innovative spatial humanities research with Prof Gary Shaw examining the spatiotemporal mobility of bishops in Medieval England. E&ES 344, taught by Kim Diver, is a project-based learning course that is part of the Academy for Project-Based Teaching and Learning hosted by the Center for Pedagogical Innovation. The 14 students in the course conducted independent research projects, worked with faculty on their research projects, or collaborated with community partners on service-learning projects. Half of the course’s projects were represented at the conference.
