Prairie to Mountain Explorer (PTME) Online
Entry ID: PTME_CD-ROM
Abstract: Prairie to Mountain Explorer (PTME) is a CD-ROM set of Geographic Information
Systems (GIS) data specifically designed for use in the classroom. GIS data
have been assembled for ID, MT, ND, SD, and WY for such themes as: bedrock
geology, roads, boundaries, cities, demographics, climate, land cover, land
ownership, species occurrences or habitats, rivers, watersheds and elevation.
Students can ... explore these data layers close up (large scale) or from a
regional perspective (small scale). Either way, students can find relationships
among these data such as the specific climates most suitable for growing corn,
or the elevations and vegetation types that certain species prefer.
Teachers interested in using Prairie to Mountain Explorer will need to have
ArcView GIS which can be purchased at an educational price from ESRI.
