Regardless of where you live, engaging with the landscape means exploring spatial relationships between human and natural phenomena. Geographic information systems (GIS) technology (www.gis.com) provides an effective way to visualize and analyze these places, and your contact with them. This activity guides you through a variety of ways to map and analyze local wild places in a spatial context through ESRI's 3-D virtual globe software, ArcGIS Explorer. This activity was developed for the 2008-2009 Earth Science Week calendar distributed by the tens of thousands by the American Geological Institute (www.agi-web.org).
