Smartphone data collection for teaching

Most of the courses I taught at Copenhagen University involved data collection with new technologies. I had reviewed smartphone applications that used geolocations when I arrived at the university, so it was tried different apps during my invited lectures:

  • iNaturalist for students in Nature Perception, to collect biodiversity data in a nearby park. We exported the results and I introduced them to QGIS to display the results and create biodiversity hotspots
  • Moves with Human Movements students, to collect a week-worth of data, download, transform, and manipulate in QGIS (also including an introduction to QGIS).
