Construction of Water Table Maps Using GIS
Bob Newton, Smith College
Bob Newton, Smith College Summary Students create a water table map and flow net using water level data from seepage lakes in the Sand Hills of Nebraska. They then are able to make hypotheses regarding the ...

Exploring Earthquake Hazards with GIS
Constantin Cranganu, CUNY Brooklyn College
This activity is a straightforward application of GIS to assessment of earthquake hazards. The students get more modeling skills with GIS and a better understanding of earthquake hazards.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Water Resources
Constantin Cranganu, CUNY Brooklyn College
This activity will demonstrate how water quality and environmental health issues can be analyzed together, how hydrologic information can be built up, and how decisions can be made using GIS.
