Summary: Use GIS to ask even deeper questions of your data, focused on distributions.
Objectives: Analyze distributions, ranges, measurements, standard deviations, and Boolean algebra statements using tables and maps in a GIS environment.
Analyzing data is an important skill in mathematics and in everyday life. A GIS allows you to analyze data in tables, or databases, and on maps, using a variety of tools. Here, let’s dig even deeper and analyze more data associated with plate tectonics: Earthquakes and volcanoes. We will use tools such as measurements, classification, and Boolean algebra statements to analyze the distribution of the data, looking at ranges, standard deviations, and more.
