AP Environmental Science

A practical guide to Environmental Science

AP Environmental Science is a course that gives you a chance to "learn about the natural world," and to "study both human-made and natural environmental problems," as stated on College Board. Currently, however, it is clear that many students are not reaping the full benefits that this course has to offer. As shown by the most recent exam score distributions in 2016, a majority (54.4%) of the students taking the exam did not pass. Additionally, the mean score sat at a low 2.55. 

So, why is this? 

As a student who actually self studied this course last year (and got a 5 on the exam), I realized that prep material, while structured, was not actually conducive to helping the student make connections between concepts as was intended by College Board. 

There is a large volume of information that you are expected to know for this exam - everything from laws, to case studies, to chemical reactions. Now, don't let this scare you - the material is incredibly interesting, and if presented in the correct manner, is possible to internalize fully. The problem is, in most books, this is not the case. Information is presented in a somewhat disjointed manner - water concepts are discussed in an early chapter, but water pollution itself is not actually discussed until some 200 pages later. 

With this course, I hope to accomplish a few things. 

Present information in a manner most conducive to learning. 

As I just mentioned, the information presented in most prep books makes it difficult to draw connections between various concepts. With this course, I have rearranged a few concepts slightly in a way that I, as a student, felt was best for my learning. 

Review and clarify information tested on the exam. 

Within this course, I have created short and to-the-point videos that allow students to review and learn the basic concepts that will be tested on the AP exam. i have created short review sheets for each section, and have also recommended exercises from a few other books that I felt prepared me well for the exam. 

Focus on the free response section. 

I said before that the scores distributions for the AP Environmental Science exam were terribly low. This is most likely due to the fact that many students perform badly on the free response section, which accounts for 40% of your total score. In my videos, I have placed an emphasis on the free response questions, as these rely most heavily on making connections and using your problem solving skills. 

Give you a basic introduction to environmental science and various overlapping fields. 

Not only do I want to prepare you for the AP Exam, but I also want you to leave with a basic understanding of environmental science. The curriculum for this course doesn't only focus on science - it also touches upon laws, politics, and businesses, among other things.

“The world we live is full of coordinates and I love it!" - Alfred Lam, the course instructor.

“The essence of creating a beautiful map is balance!" - Alfred Lam, the course instructor.

This is an entry-level course teaching how to add GIS map, 3D map to web applications in JavaScript. Code provided in this course are simple and effective. Purpose of this course is to give students an idea of to what extent ArcGIS JavaScript API can do for you.

GIS stands for Geographic Information System. It is composed of hardware, software, people, environment, and data. Therefore, students with different backgrounds can learn and use GIS. The purpose of this course is to convey a concept to students that adding a GIS map to web for your clients is not difficult. You can spend your minimum time to handle it.

If you are new to using GIS maps in web development, this course is the right place for you to start. The ArcGIS API for JavaScript has been developed by ESRI, which is so far the biggest vendor of GIS systems and applications in the world. Some developers may ask why do we bother to use GIS maps as we already have Google map. My answer is that the Google map is great for you to identify your locations. But its data, functionality, and flexibility are far from enough if you want to create a versatile app with various basemaps, to tell a story, to add your own map features, or to perform an analysis to your clients with a map. ArcGIS, on the other hand, is the most comprehensive and advanced GIS in the world and it is capable of performing all these tasks for you. Please be mentioned that the 3D map API is still in beta version.

Time is precious for many web developers and programmers. This course was condensed with all necessary steps for starting a web GIS app development. For those GIS users, students, iOS developers, and anyone who are interested in developing more decent mobile or web GIS apps. Please find at my website or be aware of my other course announcements about Android, JavaScript, and iOS in the future.

After completing this course and the exercises, you will be able to:

  • build a web application with GIS basemap;
  • select and switch basemaps;
  • create webMap at ArcGIS Online;
  • add feature layers to webMap;
  • build a web application with a webMap;
  • test code at Google Firebase static web server

My name is Ian Allan. While doing my post-graduate research, I co-authored (world top 100) Monash University’s first two GIS courses. In those courses I taught Grid Cell GIS and Vector GIS to both Undergraduate and Graduate students.

I have authored and co-authored fifteen peer reviewed publications. I have worked professionally as a GIS researcher, taught GIS to thousands of students, and worked as a GIS consultant on projects as diverse as the following…

· United Nations: Post tsunami strategic planning in Banda Ache

· Australian Federal Government: National Broadband strategic assessment.

· Victoria Australia’s Department of Premier and Cabinet: Housing affordability modelling.

· Local Government: Environmental sustainability modelling for planners,

· Water industry: Buried water pipe condition modelling. Ease-of-digging modelling. 3d landscape modelling.

For the past 24 years I’ve been a GIS researcher teacher and consultant. Over 5400 students have enrolled in my Udemy GIS courses. Here’s what some of my students say about my teaching style…

Caesar says: It was a very good class, just what I needed to get familiar with QGIS.

Carina says: “Perfect course to whom have never used… QGIS! Very detailed on the explanations and really generous additional materials to study.”

Brian says: "It was very thorough and comprehensive… Ian also covered aspects of GIS Analysis - which increases your learning and appreciation of the capabilities of how powerful the GIS tool can be"

Umar says: "Ian is vast and knowledgeable in what he teaches. I would do another course by Ian if he offered it"

Nathan says: "Really great introductory-level course! The examples were simple to follow, but also very useful. All the work can be finished while watching the videos, there was no extra work to be done without guidance. I really look forward to the next course by this instructor. - Cheers and well done!"

Boojhawon says: "Simple and very clear lectures with the minimum basics/backgrounds to get a taste of what awaits us further and also making us think of what we can do more."

SRIJON says: “I have experience in using ArcGIS. I needed the QGIS taste for which I took this. If anybody who has little experience in GIS will love the 'Techniques and Tips' parts, which are very clearly and elaborately described, which will greatly help to be a GIS interpreter. And I love the line "Don't just be a tourist." It should be the tricky line between a GIS analyst and a technician. The course will help me in my future works.”

“The world we live is full of coordinates and I love it!" - Alfred Lam, the course instructor.           “The essence of creating a beautiful map is balance!" - Alfred Lam, the course instructor.

(updated on: 2017-April-12, add revised code Sec 1 - 8 for Xcode8.3; 2017-Mar-31: add revised code for adding SDK in CocoaPods;) 

This course is about making GIS(Geographic Information System) maps to iOS platform apps by using ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS developed by ESRI. This course covers the most important concepts and basic skills for you to deploy GIS maps to iOS apps or to develop mobile GIS apps independently.

Some developers may ask why do we bother to use GIS maps as we already have google map. My answer is that the google map is great for you to identify your locations. But its data, functionality, and flexibility are far from enough if you want to create a versatile app with various basemaps, to tell a story, to add your own map features, or to perform an analysis to your clients with a map. ArcGIS, on the other hand, is the most comprehensive and advanced GIS in the world and it is capable of performing all these tasks for you.

Rather than spending time in fumbling and bewildering into APIs/code libraries, in this course, you can learn how to build GIS maps and functions to iOS apps step by step.

After completing this course and the exercises, you will be able to:

  • create apps with various basemap;
  • enrich your map with selected feature layers by utilizing ESRI resources;
  • understand your map and create your own functional tools exploring map features;

"Excellent overview of web programming with Geospatial data. I highly recommend this for any beginners. For those with more experience designing web applications, there are a number of points addressed that often are overlooked in typical tutorials. This was a great dive into using open source tools and provides a great example of the tools in action. " - Student Review on Udemy

"Thank you for this course! It fills a knowledge gap that I wasn't even aware I had. As a GIS scientist without formal computer science training, a lot of what you are teaching here will come in handy." - Student message on Udemy

"You truly have inspired me to take a step away and focus on learning more webGIS. Thanks!!" - Student comment on Twitter

"Michael is an incredibly knowledgeable instructor who assumes no prior knowledge. The course content builds up from some very basic coding practices to complex interaction between client and database via a server. Although it was not expected that the exercises were completed I did indeed follow along and now have a fully-functional webapp that I can modify to suit my needs. For an introduction, this course covers an incredibly wide range of concepts covering not only the display and processing of spatial data but also some internet security measures and even a little history thrown in which makes it much easier to understand the possibilities and limitations of Web GIS. I am thoroughly looking forward to starting Michael's Leaflet course." - Student Review on Udemy

"The course is exactly what I need -- not some copy the script and modify, but rather an understanding of what the process is. At this point, it sounds like a great overview and I am equally impressed with the background and teaching style of the instructor." - Student Review on Udemy

"Great course does exactly what it says on the tin! Easily digested bite sized lectures that are clear and concise and always put the learning into a geospatial perspective, just what I was looking for." - Student review on Udemy

This course is oriented towards achieving a conceptual understanding of how web technologies work together to form a web application that can be used to distribute, collect, or analyze geospatial data.

The focus will be on understanding concepts.  You will not have to install any software on your computer.  You will not be asked to follow along step-by-step. Instead the goal will be to provide the background information necessary to understand how the internet works, which technologies you really need to understand and when to use them.  We will also explore additional technologies that you may want to explore further as your understanding and needs grow.

We will be using readily available open source software so you will be able to create web maps without spending any money. The concepts you will learn, however, will be equally valid if you have access to commercial GIS software and web servers.

My intention is to provide the information that I wish I had available before I began my journey into the world of geospatial web development.  I spent a lot of time trying to put together the big picture from the detailed information that was available and I wasted a lot of time pursuing technologies that really were not necessary.  My hope is to help you navigate the world of web development more efficiently than I did and that after taking this course you will be better prepared to take more detailed courses from myself or others.

My goal of this course is to help students learn both 2D and 3D GIS android app development easily without wasting their time fumbling in the API library.

GIS stands for Geographic Information System. It is composed of hardware, software, people, environment, and data. Therefore, students with different backgrounds can learn and use GIS. One of my purposes of this course is to convey a concept to students that developing a GIS android mobile app for your clients is not difficult. You can spend your minimum time to handle it.

There are two versions of the ArcGIS SDK for Android development by ESRI, which is so far the biggest vendor of GIS systems and applications in the world. Here, I am using the newest version 100.x for this course. Some developers may ask why do we bother to use GIS maps as we already have Google map. My answer is that the Google map is great for you to identify your locations. But its data, functionality, and flexibility are far from enough if you want to create a versatile app with various 2D, 3D maps, to tell a story, to add your own map features, or to perform an analysis to your clients with a map.

For years I've been hearing everyone talking about Enterprise GIS, but I haven't seen anyone do it. After this course, I can now say that "I've created a multi-user enterprise GIS on my own!" - John from California.

Do you want to learn how to build an Enterprise GIS from scratch using Free and Open Source Software for GIS (FOSS4g)?

In response to the high cost and complexities of implementing an Enterprise GIS, I created this easy-to-follow, hands-on training course allowing students to actually build a multi-user enterprise GIS from scratch using Postgres, PostGIS (free) and Quantum GIS (free). As an added bonus, this training will show how you can add other GIS products (i.e. commercial GIS software) into the enterprise stack as GIS clients.

In this course you will create an Enterprise GIS that includes vector and raster data for a mid-sized municipality. You will learn how to add users, each with different permissions for accessing and editing data, and also how to use PostGRES to control all aspects of database access, presentation, and editing. You'll even perform simultaneous multi-user editing on the same GIS layer, and learn how a true Enterprise GIS can manage many users at once.

As a bonus, you will see how you can access all the GIS tools from outside of the software by using python to create a table-top GIS application that you might find at a kiosk. And finally, I will show you an example of how the same data in the enterprise can be simultaneously displayed on the Internet using FOSS4g software.

So Many R based Machine Learning and GIS Courses Out There, Why This One?

This is a valid question and the answer is simple. This is the ONLY course on Udemy which will get you implementing some of the most common machine learning algorithms on real ecological data in R. Plus, you will gain exposure to working your way through a common ecological modelling technique- species distribution modelling (SDM) using real life data. Students will also gain exposure to implementing some of the most common Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial data analysis techniques in R. Additionally,  students will learn how to access ecological data via R. 

You will learn to harness the power of both GIS and Machine Learning in R for ecological modelling. 

I have designed this course for anyone who wants to learn the state of the art in Machine learning in a simple and fun way without learning complex math or boring explanations. Yes, even non-ecologists can get started with practical machine learning techniques in R while working their way through real data. 

What you will Learn in this Course

This is how the course is structured:

  • Introduction – Introduction to SDMs and mapping habitat suitability
  • The Basics of GIS for Species Distribution Models (SDMs) – You will learn some of the most common GIS and data analysis tasks related to SDMs including accessing species presence data via R
  • Pre-Processing Raster and Spatial Data for SDMs - Your R based GIS training and will continue and you will earn to perform some of the most common GIS techniques on raster and other spatial data
  • Classical SDM Techniques - Introduction to the classical models and their implementation in R (MaxENT and Bioclim)
  • Machine Learning Models for Habitat Suitability - Implement and interpret common ML techniques to build habitat suitability maps for the birds of Peninsular Malaysia. 

It is a practical, hands-on course, i.e. we will spend some time dealing with some of the theoretical concepts . However, majority of the course will focus on implementing different  techniques on real data and interpret the results. After each video you will learn a new concept or technique which you may apply to your own projects.

This is the first landuse landcover course on Udemy the most demanding topic in GIS, In this course, I covered from data download to final results. I used ERDAS, ArcGIS, ENVI and MACHINE LEARNING. I explained all the possible methods of land use classification. More then landuse, Pre-Procession of images are covered after download and after classification, how to correct error pixels are also covered, So after learning here you no need to ask anyone about lanudse classification. I explained the theoretical concept also during the processing of data. I have covered supervised, unsupervised, combined method, pixel correction methods etc. I have also shown to correct area-specific pixels to achieve maximum accuracy. Most of this course is focused on Erdas and ArcGIS for image classification and calculations. For in-depth of all methods enrol in this course.  Image classification with Machine learning also covered in this course.

This course also includes an accuracy assessment report generation in erdas. 

Note: Each Land Use method  Section covers different Method from the beginning, So before starting landuse watch the entire course. Then start land use with a method that you think easy for you and best fit for your study area., then you will be able to it best. Different method is applicable to a different type of study area. This course is applicable to Erdas Version 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018. and ArcGIS Version 10.1 and above, i.e 10.4, 10.7 or 10.8

90% practical 10% theory

Problem faced During classification:

Some of us faced problem during classification as:

  1. Urban area and barren land has the same signature

  2. Dry river reflect the same signature as an urban area and barren land

  3. if you try to correct urban and get an error in barren

  4. In Hilly area you cannot classify forest which is in the hill shade area. 

  5. Add new class after final work
