Summary:"Does your neighborhood have """"""""wild"""""""" places? What's """"""""wild""""""""? What's the personality of the environment between home and school? What's there? How do you relate to it? How does your perspective of local geography change between being on the ground and exploring from above? Regardless of where you live, engaging with the landscape means exploring spatial relationships between human and natural phenomena. Geographic information systems (GIS) technology provides an effective way to visualize and analyze these places, and your contact with them."
