1 BScATLAS ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY AND LIBERAL ARTS & SCIENCES QGIS IN THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE TWENTE BAREND KÖBBEN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE

2 OUTLINE University College Twente Bachelor in Technology & Liberal Arts & Sciences Project-driven learning Semester 4: Complex spatio-temporal systems Ticks & Lyme disease Mapping, Modeling & Mitigation Geo Information Systems module QGIS in Labs & Assignment QGIS in the project Experiences & Conclusions Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

3 UNIVERSITY COLLEGE TWENTE Advanced Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences (ATLAS) only Honours Bachelor s programme in the Netherlands that combines Technology with Liberal education aspires to educate the new engineers : global citizens who are capable of addressing global challenges and designing solutions in a wide range of social, cultural and political contexts Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

4 UNIVERSITY COLLEGE TWENTE Highly motivated students, learning community, self-directed learning, career perspectives and engaged team of teachers Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

5 PROJECT-DRIVEN LEARNING focus on issues incorporating both technological and social aspects work in teams on large, semester-long projects on real-world problems projects form the core of the programme and drive learning project outcomes are not known (not to students, and also not to teachers!) Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

6 SEMESTER 4 SCHEDULE Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

7 THE REAL WORLD PROBLEM TICKS & LYME DISEASE In 2010, over a million people in the Netherlands were bitten by a Tick Some got infected with the Borellia bacteria (carried by many of the ticks) A proportion of those later develop Lyme disease, which can lead to problems with the joints, heart, and central nervous system Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

8 THE REAL WORLD PROBLEM TICKS & LYME DISEASE a complex spatio-temporal system Tick Bites = Tick Activity x Human Activity All parts are (inter)dependent from each other and e.g.: Climate (temperature & moisture) Vegetation Host animals (different in different stages) Human recreation patterns etc Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

9 DEALING WITH THE PROBLEM MAP, MODEL AND MITIGATE Map all constituent parts, as precisely and completely as possible Model How all parts fit together Mitigate Reduce severity & seriousness In many forms and at many parts of model Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

10 MAP, MODEL AND MITIGATE GI SCIENCE For studying a spatio-temporal problem, you need GIS knowledge and tools Geo-Information Core module (3 EC): Theory: ITC GIS core book Skills: QGIS FOSS4G Academy Labs Assessment: QGIS Assignment Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

11 GIS THEORY Content (from ITC book): Geographic data (data models, input, remote sensing, storage) From data to information (spatial analysis, modelling) Data Visualisation: communication through (info)graphics & maps flipped classroom method: students first study (books, online lectures, movies) then discuss/work-out/explain with teacher and each other in interactive sessions Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

12 GIS SKILLS FOSS4G Academy (now GeoAcademy Courses - fossgeo.org) based on the US Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) represents the essential curriculum needed to teach entry-level GIS Technician education courses provide both the background theory of geospatial science as well as the hands-on application (labs) labs using QGIS Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

13 GIS SKILLS QGIS FOSS4G Academy Labs GST 101 Introduction GIS GST 102 Spatial Analysis GST 103 Data Management GST 104 Cartography GST 105 Remote Sensing Pick your own : source of selfstudy materials to master GIS software skills needed for assignments and the project where appropriate specific parts recommended Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

14 GIS ASSESSMENT QGIS ASSIGNMENT each student chooses one of the assignments: Green City : landuse change detection Fireworks disaster : damage modelling Waste dump site : multi-criteria analysis assessment based on deliverables: GIS analysis qualities (methodology, accuracy) Visualisation qualities (cartography, graphs, etc.) Learning goals (critical self-assessment) Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

15 FIREWORKS DISASTER MODELLING Estimating damages through theoretical model Compare model with real-world data Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

16 GIS IN THE PROJECT Project phase 1 deliverable is a website that maps & models the problem Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

17 GIS IN THE PROJECT Many parts (but not all) use GIS analysis and maps Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

18 GIS IN THE PROJECT Many parts use GIS analysis and maps using GIS knowledge and QGIS skills! Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

19 Some observations on the use of QGIS in a learning environment Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

20 QGIS IN A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN GENERAL Good: Multi-platform Open : Source, Standards, Data open : extensible (python), community Powerful and complete (in combination with processing libraries and other plugins) Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

21 QGIS IN A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN GENERAL Not so good: Stability general (especially on Windows) over versions (eg. HeatMap problem in 2.8) Complexity confusion because of processing and other plugins Missing functionality e.g. in network analysis and modeler quickly catching up! Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

22 FOSS4G ACADEMY LABS SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS PROJECT QGIS labs for self-learning skills (= misuse ;-) Open! rich source for learning GIS skills well-written, complete, up-to-date (almost always) works out-of-the-box Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May

23 FOSS4G ACADEMY LABS SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS PROJECT QGIS labs for self-learning skills (= misuse ;-) very step-by-step and not problem-oriented (solutions are given away ) not made for pick-and-choose : overlap between labs missing catalog/overview/search Barend Köbben -- QGIS in the University College Twente 18 May
