Description:

In this activity, developed by the Lane Community College Geo-STAC program​, students will "describe spatial occurrence of earthquakes and tectonic landforms. Students practice Boolean logic queries to select data and describe spatial patterns. In part two, students develop and test hypotheses to explore the relationship between earthquake magnitude, location depth and the impact on human life and property." This activity was created as part of the Introductory Physical Geography course. On the site, visitors will find a link to the student activity and teaching guide, as well as link to the web-based GIS map. This is an excellent activity for high school or early undergraduate students for hands-on work with GIS and coordinate systems.
