GeoMapApp & Deep Earth Academy Lessons

Andrew Goodwillie and Steve Kluge

Originally presented 28 Sep 2013

Encourage students to engage in greater understanding of how Earth behaves through educational activities based on GeoMapApp, a powerful visualization application used by research scientists.

Overview of GeoMapApp

GeoMapApp is an earth science exploration and visualization application that is continually being expanded as part of the Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS) at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. The application provides direct access to the Global Multi-Resolution Topography (GMRT) compilation that hosts high resolution (~100 m node spacing) bathymetry from multibeam data for ocean areas and ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) and NED (National Elevation Dataset) topography datasets for the global land masses.


GeoMapApp Learning Activities
Andrew Goodwillie and Steve Kluge have created a series of educational activities that utilize GeoMapApp.
