Prairie to Mountain Explorer (PTME) Online
Entry ID: PTME_CD-ROM
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
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.

Description: ArcView GIS is ESRI's powerful view-and-query program--a "GIS for everyone."
With it, you can manipulate and display ArcInfo files, modify data, add your
own information, and even add geographic features and customizations. You can
link all kinds of data and do some rather sophisticated analyses. Basically,
ArcView GIS enables geographic exploration through design of maps, charts, and
tables in response to an endless array of "What's it like?" and "What if?"
questions.

They develop products and services for Agriculture, for Natural Resource
Management, and for K-12 Education, using satellite imagery and other spatial
technologies. They also provide information and educational outreach services
to the general public with respect to regional impacts of environmental and
climatic change. They provide products, services, and information to the
general public by operating as a Public Access Resource Center, or PARC,
focused principally on the agriculture, natural resource management, and
