Visualizations

This is a collection of visualizations of spatial phenomena or data, including a few visualization-based teaching activities. Search the collection to find visualizations you can use in your classes.

To find a visualization that meets your needs, try

  • Typing keywords into the search box below
  • Refining your search by clicking on the links in the boxes on the right hand side of this page. For example, to see visualizations related to structural geology, click on "Geology" and then on "Structural Geology." You can also limit your search by type of visualization (for example, "Maps"). If you want to see only maps related to structural geology, use both sets of boxes to limit your search returns. That is, click on "Maps" and "Geology," followed by "Structural Geology."
