Resources

Here you'll find a collection of links to people, organizations, and resources that I think are relevant to this class. This is curated by me, based on my experiences and interactions. So it's by no means a complete listing of everything relevant and good.

Continuing Your Geospatial Education

My day job isn't to develop and teach MOOCs. I'm the lead faculty member for Online Geospatial Education programs at Penn State. We offer 25+ online classes in GIS and Geospatial Intelligence. We serve people who are brand new to the Geospatial world as well as senior professionals through our Certificate and Master's Degree programs. We've been doing this stuff at a distance since 1999, serving thousands of students. We've won awards, because our faculty and staff are amazing people. Unlike a MOOC, our typical online classes involve very high levels of interaction with professors, and small class sizes to provide individualized attention.

Don't let this be your one and only experience with Geography. Aside from what we offer at Penn State, there are academic programs all around the world available to you. And if you can't afford to enroll in an academic program, most of our classes here at Penn State are available as Open Educational Resources, meaning that their content is free for you to use for self-study.

Interesting. Using Google Maps and apps on Mobile phones/devices to explore places are real life applications that many of us might be doing, especially for frequent travellers, or tourists.  Also useful for driving in unknown places, where navigation using map app is important.
