Field Exercises are a great way to learn about spatial data. Gathering data in the field allows you to make maps of your own neighborhood. Students can collect GPS data, use Microsoft Excel to process their data, and import that information into ArcView to make maps of the campus. Students learn to connect spatial data to the real world, and they grasp central concepts in GIS. This Lesson Pack contains instructions, handouts, examples, and Power Point slides for collecting GPS data, processing it using a spreadsheet program, importing it into ArcView, and converting it to shapefiles and grids.
