GEOG*4480 Applied Geomatics 2020 Projects
This course gives 4th year students a chance to plan and carry out small group projects using spatial data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This year, our students addressed research questions of a spatial nature in fields such as resource management, wildlife conservation, disaster risk, transport planning, agriculture, land cover change and water resources. Despite the significant disruption to the winter semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GEOG*4480 students persisted and all managed to complete their projects on schedule.
This course would not have been possible without the outstanding support of the two teaching assistants, Jude Keefe and Marjan Asgari, who helped students through all aspects of their project, from the research proposal to the final reports. Adam Bonnycastle, the Department’s Geomatics Specialist, also supported the course, providing technical advice to myself, the TA’s and the students. Shannon Thibodeau from Student Experience 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, Marie Puddister and Scott Schau.

The projects presented here were created by students at the University of Guelph as part of an undergraduate course in the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics. The reports included here are not peer-reviewed and are not intended to reflect the aims, objectives or policies of any level of government or any external organizations referenced in these projects. While we strive to educate the students on making their files AODA compliant, they do not necessarily meet this compliancy standard.
