2013: 4-H Maps & Apps

4-H Maps and Apps Logo

With 4-H Maps & Apps, young people become geospatial thinkers as they design and map their ideal park, use GIS mapping to solve community problems and contribute data about their community to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Activity One: Park It! Be a Layer Player: Become a “community designer” and create a GIS map that represents your own unique vision of a park that makes your community a better place to live.

Activity Two: Problems Layers! Let’s Talk Trash: Explore how GIS layers can be used to assess a messy situation by looking at data plotted out on a map and propose cost-effective solutions.
