Digital libraries are seeking innovative ways to share their resources and enhance user experience. To this end, numerous openly available technologies can be exploited. For this project, NER... More > technology was applied to a subset of the Documenting the American South (DocSouth) digital collections. Personal and location names were hand-annotated to achieve a gold standard, and GATE, a text engineering tool, was run under two conditions: a defaults baseline and a test run that included gazetteers built from DocSouth's Colonial and State Records collection. Overall, GATE performance is promising, and numerous strategies for improvement are discussed. Next, derived location annotations were georeferenced and stored in a geodatabase through automated processes, and a prototype for a web-based map search was developed using the Google Maps API. This project showcases innovations with automated NER coupled with GIS technologies, and strongly supports further investment in applying these techniques across...< Less

In this 2002 doctoral research study, eighth grade science students studying relative, local air quality indicators were divided in two groups; a treatment group that utilized GIS supported... More > scientific inquiry and a control group that used traditional mapping techniques to support their study. During the two-week treatment, the students using the GIS-supported materials were found to show positive and significant improvements in science self-efficacy and attitudes toward technology. While female attitudes and self-efficacy were not found to change, males significantly improved on all affective factors. Students using GIS also performed significantly better than traditional mapping students on science process skills, specifically data analysis techniques. Instructor effects, despite controlling for the curriculum, instruction, and technology were still very strong.< Less

Navigating Campus: A Geospatial Approach to 3-D Routing By Jake Jenkins
Paperback: $48.13
Ships in 3-5 business days
Evolving needs for universities, municipalities, and corporations demand more sustainable and efficient techniques for data management. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) enables decision makers to... More > spatially analyze the built environment. The geospatial approach is trifold. Efficiency is increased through automation of current practices such as work requests and routine maintenance. Sustainable practices will be developed by generating self-guided campus tours. Lastly, safety will be enhanced throughout campus by increasing emergency response access. Optimizing data management was conducted in three phases. First, a baseline assessment for facility management at Kansas State University was conducted. Second, case study interviews and research was conducted with leaders in GIS management. Third, practices for geospatial data management were adapted and implemented for Kansas State University: the building of a centralized database, constructing a 3D routing network, and modeling a virtual campus in 3D.< Less
