Description:

In this lesson, which is a part of a series of mathematics lessons that use GIS as the toolbox and spatial inquiry as the framework, you will use GIS for measurement. Objectives: Understand measurement concepts and practice skills, use different units of measure, use measurement in calculations, use map projections, use measurement in tabular and spatial forms with selections and buffers in a GIS environment. 20 Questions. Measurement is a core concept in mathematics and in all of life. Measurement underlies everything that is done on maps and in a GIS, because all data is grounded in a coordinate system and map projection, which is a surface that is anchored to real-world coordinates. Revised 21 May 2010.
