Coastlines Lessons for My World GIS

Great resources, folks!

Science Approach's CoastLines project has posted the My World-based lessons on its NSF-
ITEST sponsored Web site:

Environmental Monitoring
Exploring the Everglades
Invisible Boundaries
Matter of Inches
Monitoring from Afar
Storm Water Pollution

Environmental Monitoring, Invisible Boundaries, and Storm Water Pollution are My World
adaptations of ArcView 3.x lessons developed for the Center for Image Processing in
Education's Mapping an Ocean Sanctuary project. Monitoring from Afar is a My World
adaptation from the NOAA-sponsored Exploring Data with GIS to Experience Sanctuaries
materials. Exploring the Everglades and Matter of Inches were created by the CoastLines
project as training excercises. All are available for download and use by the GIS in
education community at the following URL:

The project has also posted all of its Webinar recordings, warts and all, at the following
URL:

A number of these recordings contain My World demonstrations that could be of use to
GIS educators. Note that, because of the resolution of the movies, the files are rather large
and downloads can be time consuming depending upon your connection.
