Mapping Water Quality with Google Maps and Spreadsheet Data
Uploading spreadsheet data onto Google maps is dynamite! As a science teacher, I've done this a few times and having the spreadsheet of data for comparison on the map under the "style" icon is great for analysis and review. Here is one we did last week for water quality testing around Ho Chi Minh City. I'm hoping that I can connect with some other educators that might have an interest in collaborating over such projects in the future so we can collect and compare data through "connected classrooms."
Here is a tutorial that walks you though using geo-location (latitude and longitude).
To any science teachers that might be interested in collecting and sharing some data like this in the future, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
