The 2008 TerraViva! SEDAC Viewer CD contains satellite-based data, maps, socioeconomic data, and geographic information system (GIS) tools that enable easy integration and visualization for analysis and demonstration. Applicable to lessons in the physical sciences and the social sciences, the GIS tools foster global and regional data analysis. Session participants will each receive the CD and have an opportunity to use the 2008 TerraViva! SEDAC Viewer to visually analyze satellite-based data along with socioeconomic data and maps to explore and demonstrate relationships between humans and the environment.
