Digital field scholarship (DFS) is a new cross-disciplinary Lewis & Clark initiative spanning the arts and sciences (see bit.ly/lc-dfs). During spring semester 2013, twelve students are participating in an upper-division seminar (ENVS 490), cultivating skills in geospatial fieldwork, analysis, and communication, and completing a variety of semester-long DFS projects for presentation on April 25 as part of our closing NITLE seminar. Labs explored
- mobile device geolocation errors
- field vegetation change reconnaissance
- converting maps and imagery to spatial data via georeferencing
- collecting field data and generalizing via spatial interpolation, and
- communicating spatial data analysis results via GeoCommons.
Student projects, also linked at right, range from L&C campus to Portland to Swaziland. Please visit lab or project links above for all related student posts. Here is a page linking to their final map outcomes.
