Geospatial Investigations: Mobile Data Collection & Mapping are Hot!

Collect, map, and analyze surface and air temperature data over various land covers to understand factors that impact climate. Learn how easy it is using handheld digital and infrared thermometers, "smart" mobile devices, and ArcGIS Online mapping! Although this workshop will focus on the gathering of temperature data, the "editable feature services" that will be introduced can be utilized to collect any sort of data. New Hampshire schools have already used this technique to gather data on stonewalls, animal tracks, invasive plants and animals, the distribution of intertidal organisms on the rocky shore, and even baseball stadiums across the country! Thanks to the NHSTE Chris Nelson Memorial Grant, the mobile equipment needed is available for New Hampshire schools to borrow (if not available at your own school or through BYOD). Collecting field data is a sure-fire way to engage students in problem-based learning and place-based education. The data analysis techniques support Common Core mathematics standards as well as allow students to see the application of math to real world problems. In writing up and presenting their results as web-based map journals, students can address a variety of writing standards. Come learn how to undertake such a project and share your ideas for mapping/data collection topics.
