AUTHORS: William Hansen*, John Holbrook – Worcester State University

ABSTRACT: Field activities in Earth and Environmental Sciences are an integral component of the educational process. Using Data Collector for ArcGIS allows simultaneous data acquisition in a field activity without the expense of GPS units that need to be shared in large groups. Using a Geodatabase and ArcGIS Online a set of data collection experiences and subsequent data analyses were developed for Pond Water Quality, vegetation sampling and stream sediment and structure sampling. Students find the interface more intuitive than the stylus based ArcPad application used previously in the field activities and with virtually every student using an input device, the volume of data allows more opportunity for subsequent analysis using desktop GIS. Analyses were conducted using the student collected data and a large database of existing data collected in the same areas over the past 10 years.
