Plate Tectonics

Plate Tectonics

In this activity, presented by the Lane Community College MAPS GIS Program, students will learn the concept of a digital data viewer, and how this resource can help them learn more about plate tectonics. Students will learn terminology associated with both geology and computer aided GIS. The activity is presented as a PDF, and helps the student learn by presenting a series of easy to follow questions. This allows students to learn at their own pace, as it tests their knowledge every step of the way. Visitors will find links to the instructor and student versions of the lesson and links to the web-based GIS utility used in the activity.
