Teaching Physical Geography over the winter break


I'm teaching a Brick and Click class in Physical Geography over our winter break. We met for the first time last night with a Remote Sensing Lab. Everyone is just amazed with the data available on Google Earth (or Google Maps).

It is a wonderful learning tool.

Most of the students use it to explore an area prior to a vacation. StreetView is of interest as well. Here is an image of our campus.

Tonight we do a lab on topographic maps.
