Congratulations to all the students and my co-instructor, Raja Sengupta, for another great Advanced GIScience course! Below are the final project abstracts. Be sure to click through to read the entire list:


Dynamic Multi-Scale Standardization in Watersheds

Christopher Amyot

Scale and scale type variation between disciplines often makes it difficult for researchers performing watershed analysis to compare their results with other studies. The scales used in watershed analysis are not well defined and are rarely reviewed, leading to many questions as to how spatial and temporal scale can be standardized, if it is even possible at the present time. The result of analysis of scale has resulted in the development of a criteria and framework, known as “Dynamic Multi-Scale Standardization” for the classification of scales into common standards. This framework provides cross-discipline understanding to watershed scale and is further aided by the creation of an algorithm to group scale. The techniques shown provide a non-arbitrary scaling that is both justifiable and replicable, which provides legitimacy and credibility to scale.

Peter Johnson and I had a great crop of Advanced Geographic Information Science students this year. Here are their project abstracts.

Ana Brandusescu: Location-based services: Using mobile phones to record community perceptions of university spaces

The synergy between technology and mobility has rapidly strengthened over the last couple of decades and is continuing to do so. Mobile technology, in particular mobile phones, has played an important role in the advancement of location-based services (LBS). The report investigates Ushahidi’s Crowdmap, a free and open-source software (FOSS) used as the online mapping platform for University Spaces. University Spaces was created to determine whether mobile phones can be used to record community perceptions of university space.
