2011 Research Tools
All but 1 of the classes were taught by Kurt Schwehr. I am an Affiliate Research Professor in the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping / Joint Hydrographic Center at the University of New Hampshire and a GIS Data Engineer at Google for Oceans.
The goal of this UNH course is to give students skills that will help them conquer data throughout their career. I am hoping to get this wrapped together as a book that people can take with them when they leave CCOM. I am releasing all course material under a creative commons non-commercial license, so that you can pass copies to your co-workers. 2011 is the first year that the course is being taught in this style. Please email me if you find any typos.
NOTE: The order was flipped on 2012-June-26 to have the beginning at the top.
The blog column points to posts on blogger where people can leave comments and have discussions. http://schwehr.org/blog, my normal blog channel is not setup for comments, so I will be using my blogger account for feedback.

There will be NO final. The real test will be how well you are able to use and adapt the material from this class for your own research and future classes.
NOTE: Starting at lecture 22, org files should now be "pulled" using mercurial ("hg"). I have removed the org links to encourage people to do exactly that. To get setup with the notes via hg:
mkdir ~/projects cd ~/projects sudo apt-get install mercurial # hg hg clone https://bitbucket.org/schwehr/researchtools
You should update the notes before everytime you work on the material:
cd ~/projects/researchtools hg pull # Bring the changes down to the local "repo" hg update # Change the working files to have the latest changes
