The AGSPACE Certification for GIS Beginners is a CAPE approved geospatial certification that meets the needs of Middle Schools wanting to offer the Florida CAPE Digital Tool Certificate. A certification designed for Florida’s Agriculture, Food, & Natural Resources Students at the middle school level that gives students basic knowledge in geospatial skills in the context and application of agriculture. Through geospatial technology certification students are measured against multidisciplinary skills that utilize digital mapping and visual presentation skills, word processing, database/spreadsheets and database queries. Further, content specific questions measure and quantify a student’s ability to use these technologies in agricultural and environmental settings.
Students gain hands on experience in lessons that explore each of the pathways: Food Products and Processing Systems; Plant Systems; Animal Systems; Power, Structural & Technical Systems; Natural Resources Systems; Environmental Service Systems; Agribusiness Systems; and Biotechnology. Additional topics in Habitat Managment, Wetlands and Watershed Management, Alternative Energy-related courses, give you users experience in related environmental regulatory and best practices.
Educators will find this course easy to implement in their classroom. It is modular in design and easy to use. The courseware is made of two courses from our popular aGIS series: "aGIS in Agriculture, Food, & Natural Resources" and "aGIS in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics". Below you will find a list of features in the course as well as samples of each title.
