Students in a general education, general ecology class collect vegetation data within a national park and prepare forest community maps using ArcView. Students locate sample points using map and compass skills and then collect appropriate vegetation and GPS data at each sample point. They prepare community maps using ArcView 3.2. Challenges and successes encountered in developing and implementing this activity are described, student maps demonstrated, and activity handouts provided.
