Examples of posters

produced at the end of the course Digital Earth 1

Digital Earth 1 is a part of the Bachelors Earth Sciences, Beta-gamma, and Future Planet Studies curriculum. Here students learn basics of Digital Earth Surface Analysis using Geographical Information Systems, with an emphasis on geospatial analysis techniques, remote sensing and project design (source: Course Guide). Since 2012 the course Digital Earth is plit into two separate courses: Digital Earth 1 to learn the basics of GIS, and Digtital Earth 2 to prepare for the fieldwork in Spain.

Final Assignment: Making a Scientific Poster for a food-related topic.

Prepare in groups of two students: Closing assignment (text, poster and presentation) using web services focused on parameters controlling food production, consisting of:

A) A research question on the topic of food production in one country or one continent.

B) A poster on the topic of food production in relation to climate change and related factors.

C) Two or more maps reflecting (the development of your topic in time and space) with the help of web services and/or free available geodata on the internet contributing to your poster.

D) Lay down your final assessment of the research question in writing, i.e. in a poster that bares the character of an essay with maps. The poster will consist of: 1) An introduction (including your research question) 2) The results of your answers to your research question using GIS tools and maps. 3) Conclusions and recommendations. 4) Discussion & Reflection. Examples of posters from previous years are to be found below at this web page. Study the mandatory literature and find additional relevant literature to elaborate on your specific topic. Use your knowledge of argumentation theory and the skills that you have required with regard to critical reading and argumentative writing and come up with a concise and convincingly written poster.
