Essential Concepts

These three activities introduce the Internet mapping program ArcIMS, used in our online activities for exploring Colorado's historical geography.  For the most part, the Internet mapping sites are intuitive, and most kids can probably figure them out on their own.  However, we recommend that teachers and students complete a couple activities below before moving on to the other mapping activities.

 

Note that you'll need Internet Explorer or Netscape to view the maps in this project.  Mac users: see the Help section.
