Title: Coordinate Systems
Url: http://gis.lanecc.edu/modules/ArcIMS/coordinates
Creator: Songer, Lynn
Publisher: Lane Community College (Eugene, Or.)
Description: In this activity, developed by the Lane Community College MAPS GIS Program, students "work to understand concepts of latitude and longitude using an interactive Web-based GIS map. The lesson helps review basic concepts of coordinate geometry as they move about the world identifying coordinate relationships and important reference lines." On the site, visitors will find a link to the student activity, some introductory material about GIS, and the web-based viewer used in this lesson. This is an excellent activity for high school or early undergraduate students for hands-on work with GIS and coordinate systems.
