There are three (3) individual map assignments in Bertolas' Hazards and Disasters (GEO 410/510) class. See course syllabus for map due dates.
Every registered student has access to both base
maps and lists of items to be placed on the base maps. Use your textbook
or an atlas to locate the geographic items listed for each map assignment.
Indicate and label these items on the outline maps you are provided
in the g drive.
Remember, you are being graded on both placement accuracy and clarity / neatness of maps.
How do you gain access to the map assignment materials? Simple. Make
certain you are registered for GEO 410. Log
into the Internet at any computer connected to a printer and launch Internet Explorer (might not work on Mozilla Firefox). Follow these instructions:
Go to https://ecampus.wsc.edu/index.php
Log into your e-campus account using your username and ID.
Once in your account, click on G Drive > classes > 2012_Spring_1_GEO_41001 or 2012_Spring_1_GEO_51001 > click on course_materials
Single-click on the item you wish to access. When the dialogue box pops up, click once on "Open." Print in black & white.
For the first map assignment you will need to access and print out both Basemap 1 Hazards and Map Items #1 Hazards .
Remember, printing out each item in black & white provides best results.
Some map item lists require you to print out and complete more than one map:
Map Items #1 Hazards will require only Basemap 1 Hazards
Map Items #2 Hazards will require only Basemap 2 Hazards
Map Items #3 Hazards will require only Basemap 3 Hazards
