In this edition:

This workshop will help teachers learn how to use maps to communicate information about the environment and populations. Using hurricanes as examples, we will explore how geographical tools can be used to make dynamic digital maps. We will use satellite imagery, models, and census data on populations to analyze how the environment and people intersect during hazards. We will also engage in activities to help teachers conduct their own classroom investigations by bringing modern mapping using GIS into the classroom.
