This virtual five-day field mapping project allows students to construct a geological map from data provided by the web site. Students collect geologic, structural, paleontologic, strain and microstructural data observed at specific localities. Students are then able to derive a structural history for the area, including a field map, stereographs, and deformation plots. The site contains photographs ... Full description.

This web site contains a gallery of 3D geologic maps which were created by draping color geologic maps over digital topography. The site features QuickTime Virtual Reality movies that allow the user to spin the 3D geologic map to view it from different perspectives. 3D JPEG images of the maps are available for those users with slower Internet connections. Most 3D maps also have an accompanying topographic ... Full description.
