Description:

This activity uses web-based GIS maps to explore sprawl in the Lehigh River watershed. Learners are introduced to sprawl and its effects on human and environmental health. GIS maps are used to study patterns of land use and population centers. Learners form their own opinions and decide on best practice solutions to land use problems and explore some of the options that land owners have today as a result of changing practices.
