GeoMapApp is an Earth Science exploration and visualization application that is continually being expanded as part of the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS) at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. The application provides direct access to the Global Multi-Resolution Topography (GMRT) compilation that hosts high resolution (~100 m node spacing) bathymetry from multibeam data for ocean areas and ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) and NED (National Elevation Dataset) topography datasets for the global land masses.
Join Dr. Andrew Goodwillie and Steve Kluge for a hands-on workshop where they will provide an overview of GeoMapApp. Then, they will introduce three brand new K-12 GeoMapApp Learning Activities, not yet published anywhere. The Earth2Class cohort will be the first to see them!
possible, participants should bring their own laptops so
they can take back a working copy of GeoMapApp to their
schools. The GeoMapApp web page is located at (www.geomapapp.org),
and is easy to install.
Classroom activities using GeoMapApp are available at http://serc.carleton.edu/geomapapp/collection.html
Join us for "lunch with the scientists". In the afternoon, you can continue to explore GeoMapApp learning activities for your classroom, or join us to prepare for the Lamont Open House on Saturday, 6 Oct.
