GISák LiveCD - live e-learning of geoinformatics
The poster describes how can be LiveCD (Bootable CD) used for geoinformatics distance
learning. We have prepared one LiveCD with basic software for learning geoinformatics
and we have some feedback from users and teachers. The poster should show this
feedback. LiveCD is a CD-ROM, that can be used as a bootable device. After booting
from the CD, the user can access all resources compiled to the CD. There are
operating system (usually based on GNU/Linux) and (user, desktop) software installed
and configured to be used directly after boot. Our CD named GISák LiveCD contains
basic GIS software such as UMN MapServer, GRASS, Quantum GIS, Thuban, JUMP, GPS
Drive, Blender and we work on other software packages such as MapLab for UMN
MapServer, PostGIS, GeoNetwork Open Source, CatMDEdit, gvSIG, uDIG. GISák LiveCD
contains set of spatial data from the Czech Republic. Main part of the CD are
tutorials for GIS software. CD is open for other e-learning materials. Now we have
about 20 students using>our LiveCD and few other users that are not curently our
students. The poster should show Pros & Cons of the LiveCD usage for a distance learning.
