Internet Mapping and Distributed GIServices

Internet Mapping and Distributed GIServices

From Dr. Ming-Hsiang Tsou at San Diego State University, this geography course "introduces current development of Internet mapping and advanced cartographic skills in Web-based maps." Web authoring tools and internet map servers are used to learn the techniques of internet mapping and Web-based cartography. The site contains an outline of the course, the syllabus, lecture notes, lab exercises, archived projects from previous classes, and the most recent projects that students have completed. There is also a section of related links for further information, research projects, conferences, products, and much more. This page would be a great resource for educators looking to create or modify an existing GIS course focusing on Web- and internet-based technologies.
