Now that the research terms have wrapped up, our MyCOE Teams in Africa have been posting their final results as well as reflections on the experience.  Individual projects are found under the repsective links on the Teams page.  The partners congratulate everyone for their efforts and work.  We encourage you to take a look at this research.

You can now view the standard format and list of requested content to submit your final project report online.  The minimum guidelines include a summary, a photo, a description and a map.  Of course, you can be much more creative than this, and we hope you invent new ways to show the results of the excellent work you have done.  For instance, you can post presentations, dynamic maps, photo slide shows, and more, if you wish. You are also required to indicate any formal publications that arose from your participation.  Please read these instructions and see the template project report we have uploaded for each of your teams to serve as a framework to start. Good luck!

The full set of workshop presentations, examples, data, and exercises is available to the public for download and educational use.  Thanks to Dr. Sierra and his team for packaging these materials, that are organized into five modules: GPS, Georeferencing, Remote Sensing, Databases, and Spatial Modeling Operations.  Not finding what else you need? Post a comment or offer a reference to other resources that can be added to the clearinghouse.

We hope you will share photos from the workshop or from your project with the rest of the group.  Please go to the online discussion forum and upload your favorite in the meantime, or remember to post it with your final project reports.  A caption explaining who, what, and where is appreciated.  Remember when you share images, that you are giving your implicit permission for the program to reproduce on the website, etc.  Thank you!

Thanks for a great workshop!

To everyone who participated, supported, taught, organized, helped, planned, traveled, and otherwise had a role of any kind in making the workshop a great success, we are grateful for you playing your part.  We also appreciate your submitting the evaluations, which we will use to improve this and our future programs.
