Mapping GLOBE Atmosphere and Surface Temperature Data Using ArcGIS Online

 Presenters: David A. Padgett, Associate Professor of Geography, Tennessee State University, TSU students

This webinar spotlights Tennessee State University's Geographic Information Systems Day and National Geography Awareness Week outreach activity.  Ninth grade students attending Nashville's Stratford STEM Magnet High School collected GLOBE Atmosphere and Surface Temperature Protocol data on the Friday prior to the 2017 Solar Eclipse event.  Tennessee State University geography students collected GLOBE data before, during, and after the eclipse on August 21st. Nashville was the largest U.S. city within the total eclipse area.  The TSU students were required to develop a lesson for the ninth graders using the ArcGIS Online "Story Maps" template to "visualize" the GLOBE data.  During the classroom activity, the college and high school students collectively engaged in comparing and contrasting the data observations made at their respective campuses.   Teachers attending this webinar will be exposed to a relatively simple method used to visualize and examine eclipse data using geospatial technology.
