Title: Wetlands Education through Maps and Aerial Photography (WETMAAP)
Url: http://www.wetmaap.org/index.html
Publisher: Chadron State College
Geological Survey (U.S.)
Description: This partnership of government and education seeks to: introduce educators to wetland habitats' functions and values; introduce educators and students to wetland mapping, digital databases, and Global Information System (GIS) technology; assist educators with the integration of wetland issues into existing curricula; promote public awareness of wetland loss issues; and provide an understanding of the cause and effect of wetland change. It currently features fifteen WETMAAP wetland sites scattered about the continental United States and one in Costa Rica. Each site has several of these features: educator supplement, photo essay, background information, background slides, habitat slides, aerial photography, airborne scanner imagery, nautical chart, shoreline change map, habitat maps, topographic maps, and land cover maps. For some of the sites there are also lesson plans.
