Specifically designed to work in your site-licensed ArcGIS laboratory, the GIS Investigations for the Earth Sciences is a collection of modular investigation guides that let even novice users tap the power of the ArcGIS software to explore, manipulate, and analyze large data sets. Carefully designed and class tested, the guides emphasize the visualization, analysis, and multimedia integration capabilities inherent to GIS. The guide leads students through a set of exercises in which they are asked to explore, analyze, and then elaborate on the information extracted from a robust GIS dataset using your laboratory's ArcGIS software. The GIS information has been preprocessed into maps and legends, and some procedures have been automated so students can focus on the science content. The complete GIS datasets needed to work through each module are available exclusively online and have been designed to be uploaded into the ArcGIS application already installed in your laboratory. By focusing on teaching with GIS rather than teaching about it, you can incorporate GIS easily into homework, discussions, or lab sessions. This flexible teaching resource motivates and enables your students to "learn by doing" as they use a full complement of GIS capabilities. Each module in the GIS Investigations series complements any introductory course in geology, meteorology, oceanography, physical geography, natural hazards, Earth sciences, atmospheric science, and Earth systems science.

Michelle Hall and The SAGUARO Project team have developed a series of four GIS INVESTIGATIONS over the course of the last few years. These materials have been extensively class-tested at both the college and high-school level using funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
