Geographic Information Systems have evolved with advances in information technology, and spatial methods of research and teaching have become more prevalent in a variety of academic disciplines. An emerging technological pattern for the storage, presentation, analysis and dissemination of GIS data is "Web GIS." In this seminar we will discuss the WebGIS implementation pattern, realized as the software-as-a-service tool ArcGIS Online, and consider how it can enable robust mapping and data sharing workflows as a complement to – or in some cases, a substitute for – traditional desktop mapping software. We will discuss how Virginia Tech has configured and manages its ArcGIS Online organization, and provide instructions for accessing this resource. This is an introductory course; no prior experience with ArcGIS Online is necessary.
