One-two punch: farming, global warming destroying unique East African forests

One-two punch: farming, global warming destroying unique East African forests | Environmental Remote Sensing | Scoop.it
Lush mountains speckle East Africa's grasslands and desert, from Mozambique to Ethiopia. These isolated habitats are home to a plethora of species, and are considered by scientists to be some of the most biodiverse regions in the world. However, their forests are being cut down for farmland and are threatened by global warming, putting at risk multitudes of species that have nowhere else to go.

Hard and Soft Skills in Preparing GIS Professionals: Comparing Perceptions of Employers and Educators

 

Thomas A. Wikle and Todd D. Fagin, Article first published online: 3 NOV 2014. DOI: 10.1111/tgis.12126

 

"Abstract

 

Organizations that hire GIS professionals look for entry-level employees with specialized technical skills but also other competencies such as effective communication and a capacity to think critically and creatively. Indeed, the success of GIS projects and initiatives often depends on individuals who possess a combination of specialized GIS skills and more general competencies that influence their ability to collaborate and manage resources. This article presents findings from a survey of GIS employers and educators concerning the importance of hard and soft skills among entry-level GIS professionals. A key finding is the high level of consistency in ratings assigned by employers and educators concerning hard skills such as data editing and GIS analysis and soft skills including problem solving and adaptability. However, the groups were less similar in ratings assigned to data capture skills, project management, and written/verbal skills. GIS qualifications were also compared, revealing a greater emphasis on internships among educators and higher ratings assigned to academic GIS certificates among employers."

Critical GIS Reading List
I've constructed this bibliography as a set of key readings, organized as a chronology, that I feel traces the various genealogies of contemporary 'critical GIS'.  This is, of course, a work in progress, and I'll look forward to comments/feedback/questions!

See also the following bibliographies:
on literary geography and mapping (http://literarygeographies.wordpress.com/litgeog-mapping/) by Sheila Hones and James Kneale, on code/space (http://www.samkinsley.com/2012/01/26/a-preliminary-bibliography-for-studies-of-codespaces/) by Sam Kinsley.
