Investigate North Atlantic hurricanes by using web-GIS (National Atlas) and desktop GIS (AEJEE). Included in this lesson are instructions on how to download and save data from the National Atlas online, how to determine how many hurricanes crossed each state, and how to analyze wind speed and pressure by making thematic maps. This lesson is targeted toward the beginner but contains some intermediate/advanced questions to build further inquiry. Included in the ZIP file are the atlas data layers in case the student does not have access to the Internet.
