ABSTRACT: With the more intuitive interface of AGO, it is easier to incorporate AGO activities in undergraduate non-GIS courses, enabling students to focus on content rather than mastering the technology. With this in mind, three professors from different disciplinary backgrounds, cultural geography, geosciences, and science education, created a 3-week module on food security using AGO to integrate social and environmental datasets. The module culminates with a small research project on food security in three localities, urban New York City, rural Nebraska, and developing islands in the Caribbean.
