GIS Close To Home

By: Otto Borden ‘13

Ever tour Europe without leaving the comfort of your couch? Or explore the history of Islamic travelers through Google Tours? The students in Professor Sorrentino’s class had the chance to do just that. The GIS lab was able to teach the students how to use Google tours and how to create their own tours. This meant including images, blurbs, and hyperlinks to the sources of their information to give the best Google tour for their assignment. Also, GIS had the privilege of running the lab’s online learning program for Professor Sorrentino. While the learning process is taking place close to home, the subjects and environments are across land, sea, and history!
