Jules Verne Voyager, Jr.
This interactive map tool enables students and scientists to better understand the relationships between geophysical and geological processes, structures, and measurements with high-precision GPS data. It contains prepared images taken from the Jules Verne Voyager. Users can choose from a variety of base maps, add a number of geographic and geophysical overlays (e.g. plate boundaries, earthquake and volcano locations), and then superimpose crustal motion velocity vectors to observe how the tectonic plates move in relation to one another. The tool can be used to explore topics such as plate tectonics, seafloor spreading, and seasonal land and ocean productivity.
