Innovative geospatial tools for education and research

You are here

To support the research of Prof. Alec Bodzin, Prof. David Anastasio, and Rajhida Sharif; Scott Rutzmoser from the LTS Digital Scholarship Team designed web-based learning tools to help assess the benefits of web-based geographic information systems (Web GIS). These tools were implemented in undergraduate classes at Lehigh University and the research indicates that Web GIS does support geospatial analysis for making inferences about space, geospatial patterns, and geospatial relationships. The results of the study are published in the November 2016 issue of Journal of Geoscience Education at
