Exercises - Learning Units

Each Learning Unit (LU) focuses on the acquisition and integration of federal land remote sensing data with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). LUs cover about two weeks of instruction and can be used as skills-based case studies in a wide variety of courses and as building blocks for new courses. Please note that most LUs assume a basic understanding of GIS. For remote sensing concepts and guidance on software use please refer to materials under Institutes, Cohort 1 & 2 Institute Training Resources.  Each LU includes three documents and data:

(1) an Instructors Guide,

(2) a Student Guide (with data), and

(3) a Curriculum Support document.  

iGETT Learning Units may be used for educational purposes only.

Exercises are bundled as a set of documents called Learning Units (LUs). The data and documents for each LU can be downloaded from the web page (click here for Help in downloading LUs). If you do NOT want to download the LUs, you may receive up to four LUs FREE on a DVD by filling out a Form to Request LUs. DVDs will generally be mailed within 5 business days of receipt of requests. Please see the table of LU Exercises by Focus Area for the names and topics of all LUs or see the Thumb Nails below for a description of each LU.
