Students will leverage some of the tools and features available within ArcGIS Explorer Online to visualize and assess globally the areas of coral bleaching and disease between the years 2000 and 2006. Students will also have an opportunity to explore factors (i.e., water temperature, population density) related to the health of coral reefs and discover their relative and absolute locations. This activity can be used as an introductory lesson about coral reefs. A more in depth lesson will be available soon using ArcGIS Desktop10 - For data and additional lessons/resources please visit:
