This course is a directed study course with Dr. Jim Newhard, Dr. Norm Levine, and Dr. Paul Anderson at the College of Charleston that brings together the Classics, Geology, and Computer Science departments. Using advanced GIS techniques in combination with SQL server we will attempt to improve the current viewing solution to Avkat Informatics. I will be working alongside another student, Matt Mazzarell, to display the GIS data in the Web View on our server, earth.cofc.edu.
On Tuesday, September 11, 2012 Norm gave Matt and I a quick lesson on the mapping of network drives that will be used to ensure consistency across the project. This is the same mapping that is used by all involved in the GIS work at the College of Charleston. He also walked through some basic server setup and maintenance to allow us to have access to remote login to the server, earth. All involved in the Avkat project have been granted access to the server at this point and can proceed to work.
