While we do have some single lessons on our site, we didn’t have one that met this criteria exactly. We did find some resources online that might be helpful.
Biodiversity Mapping has a nice collection that’s easy to view. http://www.biodiversitymapping.org/
A good article and a gallery of images(maps) from the folks at Yale…
What are hotspots as it relates to conservation? http://www.conservation.org/How/Pages/Hotspots.aspx
Focused regional maps make up this collection: http://www.cepf.net/resources/maps/Pages/default.aspx
Top of the morning to all of our geo-friends! The GISetc is showing off our Irish roots as you can see by our dancing. We also wanted to point you to some great map resources.
Thanks for stopping by and spreading the joy of all things geo!
Check out the latest project from Barbaree about using GIS to teach Common Core standards. This summer she added math and has a nifty portal to serve as home base. Click on over to www.barbareeduke.com/ccgis to get all the details. You could be mapping your way through Common Core today!
GISetc is wishing all a Happy Earth Day! Today we will post several pics on this blog and our social network channels to NASA to “create an image of Earth from the ground up.” Get outside today and take your#GlobalSelfie, help NASA and put yourself on the map!
The global results are pretty cool! http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/2014-globalselfie-wrap-up/#.U4TBY_ldWa8

We’d love to see all of our geospatial friends next week at TCEA! We have presentations on Tuesday at the ELA/SS Academy and you can catch us hanging out, being spatial in the exhibit hall at Esri booth 2210! If you’re in Austin, TX for the event, please come say hello and talk GIS with us!
If you liked what you saw, get the handouts and goodies at our page or online at the conference handout page.
Our year in review:Migrated to a new and more “with it” website format Changed our eShopping cart (yet again) Blogged and curated some of the best geospatial content on the internet Inaugurated a great new sticker series Did trainings in Texas, California, Hawaii, Costa Rica, the United Kingdom, Abu Dhabi and Kuwait and oh YES… we started a non-profit called Geoporter!
Stay tuned in 2014 as GISetc returns as part of your monthly emails. We have some fantastic content and resources coming your way! AND please think about checking out what Geoporter is up to as it grows and spreads. Please spread the word.
So, from each of our desks, we wish you a restful and very geospatial holiday season.
Oh yeah…enjoy our holiday video! http://tinyurl.com/GISetc2013
