Tackling some technical issues today

Reviewing Midterm

The midterm answer key is posted online at:

Geog 204 2020, Midterm Answer Key

We will go through the answer key and see if we can access the quiz each student wrote through Teams. Scott has returned each student’s quiz back to the students several times as well as “posting the results” for each student. Sorry for all the emails you may be getting from Teams!!

If you cannot access your work, we will have to troubleshoot the problem.

GPS Data off your mobile phone

Hopefully we are not taking too much on by getting students to download the tracking information off their mobile phones this week. We are hoping to add this data into your assignment for this week.

  • Select (scrolling may be necessary if there are plenty of sessions collecting data) the track or waypoints you are interested in bringing into QGIS/ArcPro
  • Hit the export arrow (second from the right on the top)
  • The gpx file will be saved in the GPSLogger folder on your mobile phone
  • Connect your mobile to your computer and drag over your file

Methods 2 – Email the file to youself

  • Your tracks and waypoints will be listed by date

iPhone and GPXTracker
