The Lewis & Clark bicentennial has begun. For persons interested in using ArcView (3.x or 8.x) to explore aspects of the expedition, the ESRI Schools and Libraries Program has produced a series of Lewis and Clark GIS data layers and basic contextual projects. The Lewis and Clark data contained here are improved versions of earlier files along with new layers. The projects also contain added continental GIS layers to provide a spatial contextual starting point in which to place the Lewis and Clark expedition. The projects and the Lewis and Clark data, likewise, should be seen as jumping off points for richer data and project development.
No written lesson is provided with these materials. However, one can easily modify the lesson provided in the earlier ArcLesson, Mapping the Lewis & Clark Expedition, 1804-1806.
