In this lesson, students will learn foundational skills for viewing and editing geospatial data using real-world examples. Using the colony locations of the thick-billed murre, a culturally important arctic bird, students will learn how to view point data, access and interpret the attribute table, and add new data points with attributes.
Learning Goals and Outcomes
- Understand that data visualization helps people interpret the past and present
- Develop an initial model that describes thick-billed murre data from QGreenland
- Be able to: Turn data layers on/off, access and interpret a vector attribute table, and create new data by adding a point
