The Spring 2015 semester was the first time Advanced GIS was offered at UWGB. This small but determined class of undergraduate and graduate students put their project management, database creation, and spatial analysis to the test with semester-long projects.
Check out the links to two of the student’s course websites:
Mike Hastreiter’s research on Green Bay park quality and availability: https://sites.google.com/site/mikehsgisclasswebsite/home
Roni Kasperek’s research on food insecurity in Green Bay:
Take a look at some of the fine work completed this Spring by students in PU EN AF 350: GIS for Public and Environmental Policy. I look forward to helping some of these students submit their work to UWGB’s student research forum next spring!
On Saturday, September 20th the students of UWGB’s Coastal Resources Policy and Management class took a field trip to Door County’s Lake Michigan coastline to study the coastal processes and responses of three distinct coastlines. The foretasted thunderstorms passed before dawn and we were treated to a gorgeous day on the lake. The intense storms that passed in the early morning were still affecting Lake Michigan; we were treated to some pretty spectacular examples of wave action, rip currents, and erosion.
Learning in the field
Take a look at what some of my independent study students have been working on this semester:
I currently have openings for Master’s students in the Environmental Science and Policy program, as well as undergraduate students.
In particular, I am seeking students interested in:
- Green infrastructure
- Urban environmental inequality
- Environmental Planning
- GIS-based research applications for environmental policy and planning
