20130714023048udyny.jpg

If the zombie virus was spreading, wouldn't you want to know where it was going?

How does geography help us stay ahead of the zombie outbreak?


In this project, you will learn to use geographic tools and data to track the spread of the zombie apocalypse.


STEP 1: DOWNLOAD the Zombie Attack Data file and save it to your DESKTOP. 

STEP 2: OPEN the PDF file Monitoring Zombie Attack Data  

STEP 3: COMPLETE all the directions in the Monitoring Zombie Attack Data. (When the directions mention downloading "Zombie Attack Data from Edmodo" in steps 25 and 27, ignore that, you have already downloaded that file to your desktop in the last step)

STEP 4: TAKE a SCREENSHOT of your FINAL MAP, and SAVE it to your ZOMBIE FOLDER on GOOGLE DRIVE and name it ZMAP1

STEP 5: OPEN a document on GOOGLE DRIVE and ANSWER the questions at the end of the Monitoring Zombie Attack Data.  Save this document to your ZOMBIE FOLDER on GOOGLE DRIVE and name it ZDAY1.

STEP 6: On your ArcGIS map under CONTENTS click the arrow to the right of Zombie Attack Data and select REMOVE.  Repeat for the second Zombie Attack Data that is listed. Once you have removed both of them, click SAVE at the top of the map.  When that opens, click SAVE a second time.

STEP 7: Log in to KID BLOG and create a blog entry , REFLECTING on what you learned from this MODULE.  Which of the FIVE THEMES OF GEOGRAPHY did you use during this part of the ZOMBIE OUTBREAK?  Why would they be useful?

*** At the end of this section you should have TWO files in your ZOMBIE FOLDER: ZMAP1, and ZDAY1
