SpatiaLabs 2013 –
Esri Press SpatiaLABS are standalone activities designed to promote spatial reasoning and analysis skills. Covering a wide variety of subject matter useful in standard computer-lab sessions and longer-term projects, SpatiaLABS illuminate relationships, patterns and complexities while answering provocative questions like “How might visibility have affected political boundaries in ancient civilizations?” or “Is there a connection between ethnicity and exposure to industrial toxins?” or “How worried should I be about the stagnant pond a quarter mile away?” Lab descriptions and downloadable material are available here.
