Description

Join Geographer Joseph Kerski as we explore the relationship of plate boundaries, fault lines, volcanoes, and earthquakes using interactive web mapping tools that are driven by Geographic Information Systems (GIS).  Through this workshop you will discover where to find these mapping tools and resources, how to teach with them, and how to use the same web mapping platform to analyze other earth-science related phenomena, such as watersheds, geology, ocean currents, historical and current topographic maps, and more.   These tools work on any device and only a web browser and internet connection is needed.

Key Questions

--What web GIS is and how you can teach with its resources.

--Some of the Whys of Where - reasons earthquakes and volcanoes occur where they do.

--Where the strongest and the deepest earthquakes occur under land and under the oceans.

--How to determine where mapped data comes from.

--How you can make your own maps with web GIS.

Expected Outcomes

1.  How to use Web GIS to investigate the planet.

2.  Where and why earthquakes and volcanoes occur.
