GIS Environmental Education
http://www.enr.state.nc.us/ENR/ee/gisee/gisee.htm
This Web site is a produvt of a growing assemblage of people from local, state and private sector organizations in North Carolina are working together to make local and statewide environmental data more readily available and usable by teachers, students and the general public. The consortium aims to enhance environmental education by enabling teachers and students as well as the general public to access North Carolina environmental data using geographic information systems (GIS). Projects include the Upper Neuse Regional Data System, NC River Basins, and Acid Rain Across America.

Upper Neuse Regional Data System
http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/stacks/gis/regional/
This Web-based interactive database contains numerous layers of socioeconomic data, natural resource collection, and environment data. Users can, explore, create, query, and print maps displaying information about the Upper Neuse Region in North Carolina.

Exploring Earthquakes in Space and Time Through the Internet and a Geographic Information System
http://rmmcweb.cr.usgs.gov/public/outreach/quakegis/

This module contains an exercise in which students are asked to examine the frequency and distribution of earthquake epicenters and compare these epicenters to the distribution of plate boundaries and cities. Students download earthquake epicenters for the last several days and for an entire year from the Internet, and map the information using ArcView geographic information system (GIS), and analyze the patterns that become evident.
