Crate Lake Map Assignment part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
In earth science, map interpretation is probably the critical restriction curtailing students' ability to access and explore course concepts. Anaglyph maps are visualizations that present mapped data in a 3D way that make it more accessible to every student, not just those with strong spatial and conceptual skills. This exercise gives students a chance to compare a topo map with a 3D map and use the maps to answer questions. The questions highlight student gains using 3D to interpret surface features.
