Guest Posts on Disasters, Sustainability, and Climate Change Impacts

For several years I have been offering a 3 credit hour senior/graduate level geospatial course at the university of Mississippi, USA. During the course lectures I have motivated the students to conduct geospatial and GIS term projects on current sustainability challenges facing the nation.
Also, since the last decade my M.S. and PhD graduate students have been using remote sensing and geospatial technologies in their graduate research, thesis, and dissertation. I am proud of my students who did excellent research and produced many outstanding reports.

I am sharing the following highlight excerpts from selected geospatial project reports of my students at the University of Mississippi, which are presented in upcoming guest posts:

  1. Dr. Uddin’s GIS lecture notebook is a great tool for any person interested in learning GIS without taking the course. I was able to use it to make a thematic map to insert in my Infrastructure Management term project. My partner and I deemed that a thematic map was very important to show the trends of Bridge Deficiency in the United States.
