Description:

Because they are spatial and temporal phenomena, hurricanes can be better understood using maps, particularly digital maps within a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) environment. This activity guides users through analyzing hurricanes online using nationalatlas.gov and through free desktop GIS (ArcExplorer Java Edition for Education (AEJEE)). This activity was developed for the 2007-2008 Earth Science Week calendar distributed by the tens of thousands by the American Geological Institute.
