“Scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center, the Yellowstone Ecological Research Center (YERC), the Creekside Center for Earth Observation (CCEO), and ESRI have created 30-meter solar and temperature distribution maps in mountainous Yellowstone National Forest using tools in the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension. These products support ecological management in Yellowstone, the first and most famous national park in the world.”

Combining Math, Science, and GIS: Students Use GIS to Solve Real Problems

“Steve Obenhaus, a math teacher at Olathe North High School in Olathe, Kansas, has proved that you do not need extensive GIS training to effectively and meaningfully integrate geospatial technologies into a high school curriculum.

“Integrating GIS in secondary curricula is a relatively new concept. Finding an approach that will hold students’ short- and long-term interest can be difficult. Obenhaus has succeeded in incorporating GIS in his math courses and has helped his students produce high-quality GIS projects.”
