Mapping Spatial Data from South Africa to New Hampshire - Field Trip!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Receive an introduction to technology and methodology for collecting field data. On a recent field trip to South Africa, 11 New Hampshire high school students gathered spatial data, which can be mapped using the Collector App made available to you and your students by Esri. Collector App is FREE to any K-12 educator in the county and even many parts of the world, including South Africa! The app allows you to collect customized data features that have a spatial component (lat/long), allowing you to create maps that can tell a story (with pictures) and also allows for further analysis of patterns. While in South Africa, we collected natural resource data, generated maps, and created stories about the information and experiences. We also expanded our experiences and data to include such subjects as ecology, geology, environmental science, art, math, and anthropology. This presentation will showcase the maps, pictures, and analysis results from that field trip. Get outdoors! Use the power of maps to tell stories! Share experiences and reconnect to the natural world through similar field trips. Interested in a school field trip to South Africa? (Presenter(s): R. Scott Semmens, HS Science Teacher, Hopkinton Middle High School)
