Mapping Tectonic Hotspots
The key outcome of this activity is to learn how ready data and maps
can be imported into ArcMap for use in GIS visualization and
analysis. In this activity we will combine data from many sources to
explore the distribution of recent earthquakes and volcanic
eruptions. We will also see how easily data can be exported into
Google Earth KML format for visualization and how terrain models can
be constructed for 3-D visualizations.
By the end of the activity you will be able to:
1) Import data and maps into ArcMap
2) Define and use appropriate coordinate systems and projections for
3) Export data into KML format for viewing in Google Earth
4) Create and edit terrain models
