Navigating the World with GIS: A Companion for World Regional Geography equips students with the skills required to thoughtfully, ethically, and responsibly navigate the world they live in, whatever changes may come. Geographic information systems (GIS) exercises in this lab manual accomplish several pedagogical goals. First, the exercises introduce students to GIS as an analytical tool. Second, they reinforce topical course content that instructors cover in lectures, class discussions, or other more traditional educational formats. Finally, students develop spatial thinking skills and engage critically with course content. The labs in this manual demonstrate the power of GIS to solve problems in a variety of applied and practical contexts, helping to draw students to Geography as a major or minor discipline of study.

Navigating the World with GIS: A Companion for World Regional Geography by Sean Crotty and Kyle Walker :

  • utilizes a web mapping system, ArcGIS Online, to introduce students to geospatial technology and help them share their work via the internet.
  • features chapters that can be used as stand-alone exercises, allowing instructors to assign chapters in whatever order best suits their own course design.
  • engages readers with introductory concepts in GIS and cartography to help students build a strong foundation for enrollment in additional Geography and GIS courses.
