The Digital Atlas of Idaho was created in order to convey the "integration of data on geology, hydrology, biology, climatology, and anthropology onto a common digital map base", and is the result of collaboration between Idaho State University, Boise State University, and the Idaho Museum of Natural History. Visitors to the site can view the areas of study on the home page, which include "Geology", "Biology", and "Geography". By scrolling over each area they can see the topics these areas cover. For example scrolling over "Geology" will show a number of topics including "Rocks of Idaho", "Snake River Plain", "Fossils", "Geology Basics", and "Geology of SE Idaho". Users interested in teaching about some of the topics covered by the Digital Atlas should check out the "Teaching Resources" link for lesson plans available for grades K-12. There are also "Digital Exercises", "Charts", "Images", and "Glossaries" to further inform the lessons. Visitors can find such digital exercises as "Butterfly Identification Exercise", "Name That Cloud", and "Geographic Processes and the Visible Landscape".
