Teaching Innovations



Professor Tsou demonstrates the utility and ease of using a geographic information system (GIS)and location-based services (LBS) on a hand-held device (iPod Touch). The affordability and accessibility of this new type of GIS represent a shift from previous types of GIS which required expensive software and training to use.
