In this activity, developed by the Lane Community College MAPS GIS Program, students are "introduced to the concept of a watershed and begin to develop its biogeographic history from settlement to present day." Students then use maps they created to head into the field to check the validity of the data. On the site, visitors will find a link to the student activity, some introductory material about GIS and the web-based viewer used in this lesson, and a link to the data needed to complete it. This is an excellent activity for high school or early undergraduate students for hands-on work with GIS and its use in solving problems.
