GEOG*4480 Applied Geomatics 2023 Projects
GEOG*4480 is the department’s capstone course in Geomatics, providing 4th year undergraduate students with an opportunity to design and implement projects using Geographical Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing data and spatial analytical methods. In the Winter 2023 semester, GEOG*4480 students took on projects addressing problems including wildlife habitat, urban and infrastructure development, deforestation and land use change.
This course would not have been possible without the outstanding support of the two teaching assistants, Jacob Mardian and Yannan Wang, who regularly met with students to assist them with all aspects of their project, from the research proposal to the final reports. Adam Bonnycastle, the Department’s Geomatics Specialist, also provided regular support by providing technical advice to myself, the TA’s and the students. Shannon Thibodeau from Student Engagement and Leadership and Quin Shirk-Luckett from the Data Resource Centre at the University of Guelph provided additional training support throughout the course. Finally, I would like to acknowledge the excellent IT and web publishing support provided by Gihan Sooriyabandara and Marie Puddister.
I would like to commend all our students for their impressive work on these projects. I am proud of the work our students accomplished this semester.
