In this exercise from SERC's Starting Point, students measure a topographic and geologic cross-section across a floodplain by simple surveying and auguring techniques. This example demonstrates how basic GIS elements can enhance learning by adding spatial context and introducing mapping techniques. GIS elements encourage students to consider the spatial context of field observations, introduce GPS ... Full description.

In this activity, students will use a Geographic Information System (GIS) to map the occurrence of all known meteorites in Colorado before 2000. By making modifications to the map they have constructed, the students will answer some questions about the distribution pattern they see and why it might exist. The activity uses ArcExplorer Java Edition for Education (AEJEE), a free GIS software produced ... Full description.
