How I Use It
In science, specifically earth science we use this app to help us approximate the various changes in elevation for a particular area. We can then see how these changes in elevation are displayed by the flow of water in an ecosystem. We can equally see how cities and towns are concentrated more closely around large bodies of water. This application can be used in a variety of ways and is not limited to earth science.
My Take
This is a diverse app that can be added to almost any devise. The students really enjoy finding things that are familiar to them. This can be used as a hook to discussing a variety of different things.
