For example, The NCGIA GIS Core Curriculum () and the GIS&T Body of Knowledge (first edition, ) were two valuable resources for faculty and instructors to consider as they designed new syllabi and plans for both formal and informal instruction.

NCGIA has also developed similar materials for use in elementary and high school education. Within the last three years, NCGIA has created a Core Curriculum in Remote Sensing, a Core Curriculum for Technical Colleges, and has coordinated a revision of the Core Curriculum now resident on the World Wide Web and accessible to all.

While developing the first GIScience curriculum at the University of Texas at Austin in the s, Ken saw the value of sharing educational materials across institutions as demonstrated by the impact of the NCGIA's Core Curriculum as well as the potential for using hypermedia and multimedia for effective learning and teaching.

Tag: curriculum. Posted on Aug Janu Engaging new GIS students with web mapping. Simultaneously published at V1 Magazine with thanks to Matt Ball, co-founder and editor, Vector1 Media. Not that long ago, I considered “web mapping” an advanced topic, best left to be taught in a senior GIS course.

NCGIA released the Core Curriculum, which was intended to provide a scope and sequence for GIS education at the undergraduate level. Thought was given to adapting this curriculum to the high school level.

However, K–12 teachers considered the Core Curriculum to be unrelated to the curriculum teachers are tasked to teach. NCGIA Unit 2 1. Getting to know ArcGIS Price: p. 2 1/17 1/19 Basics of Cartography Chapter 10 NCGIA Unit 20 2. Getting to know ArcMap Price: p.

"The Guide has been designed for everyone involved in geospatial analysis, from undergraduate and postgraduate to professional analyst, software engineer and GIS practitioner. It builds upon the spatial analysis topics included in the US National Academies 'Beyond Mapping' and 'Learning to think spatially' agendas, the UK 'Spatial Literacy in Teaching' programme, the NCGIA Core Curriculum.

I read Ned comments - if you look at NCGIA Core Curriculum, it is very broad, so I suggest to keep at least the word Curriculum there (drop Core)--if we want to stress education in general, how about calling it Education and Curriculum Project.

It builds upon the spatial analysis topics included in the US National Academies 'Beyond Mapping' and 'Learning to think spatially' agendas, the UK 'Spatial Literacy in Teaching' program, the NCGIA Core Curriculum and the AAAG/UCGIS Body of Knowledge.What was missing was the actual substantial content I thought would be included, as was done with the NCGIA core curriculum.

I realize that getting as far as they did was a huge feat, and I in no way want to detract from their accomplishment, but I had envisioned something more like the book.,Wiley, and from various used book sites.
