Overcoming perceived GIS resource limitations


This module (Teaching with GIS) is designed to highlight GIS concepts that may be added to many geoscience topics and exercises. In particular, we focus on using GIS at the level of introductory geoscience; however, many of the exercises and concepts may be applied in upper level courses as well. We will attempt to answer the following questions:

Do I need to be a GIS wizard to introduce GIS concepts in my courses?

Aren't the hardware and software requirements of GIS prohibitive at the introductory level?
