Introduction to GIS Using ArcExplorer and Brooklyn Data Sets part of Cutting Edge:Urban Geology:Activities
The lessons introduce students to ArcExplorer GIS using publicly available online GIS data sets of Brooklyn, and water quality data of Prospect Park with locations taken by GPS receivers. In this way, students learn field and GIS lab skills using a familiar place and a topic, water quality, of interest to them. Although ArcExplorer has a steep learning curve, starting with ArcExplorer helps students transition to the more complex ArcView software.
