Online GIS Google Maps Google Earth QGIS GPSConcept of Space: Concept of Space Between? Which way? How far? Where? How long? How close?PowerPoint Presentation: Any technology that answers a ‘where’ questionWhat Are Spatial Technologies?: What Are Spatial Technologies? GIS GPS Remote SensingGPS: GPSGIS: GISGIS: GIS GIS allows us to view layers of information as well as information that is embedded in each layerQuestions: Questions Where along our waterway are nitrates and phosphates concentrated? How many blocks of land will be affected by a 2m flash flood? Where can weeds be found around the school? What areas of the city experience higher levels of CO 2 ?Data for GIS: Data for GIS Data for a GIS comes in three basic forms: Image data—using images to build maps Image data includes satellite images, aerial photographs. Also known as Raster data. Spatial data—what maps are made of Points, lines and areas (polygons). Spatial data provides the location in space, the geometry and information for map features such as nations, streets, or catchment testing sites. Tabular data—adding information to maps Tabular data is information describing a map feature. For example, a map of Australia’s rivers (displayed as lines) may be linked to data on the volume of each river.Remote Sensing: Remote SensingWhy Spatial Technologies?: Why Spatial Technologies?Why Use GIS in Class?: Why Use GIS in Class?
