Description:

In this video adapted from Pathways to Technology, you’ll learn how geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) are changing the ways professionals, in many fields, make decisions about their businesses. GPS/GIS technology is used in farming, emergency management, environmental resource work, and city planning. With GPS/GIS, any kind of flow that needs to be studied, from traffic to crop yields to pollutants, can be tracked, mapped, and analyzed. The video runs 1:35 and is accompanied by a background essay, standards alignment, and discussion questions.
