Book Description

August 21, 2009 0321636996 978-0321636997 1
Encounter Geosystems gives you a well-organized way to visualize key topics, helping you find Google Earth™ locations
for assignments created. Here's how it works: Each of 20 Explorations consists of a worksheet and a .KMZ file. The
worksheets, available in the workbook or as PDFs, guide you through activities and ask for feedback. The .KMZ files,
designed to be read by the Google Earth™ application, contains placemarks, overlays, and annotations referred to in the
worksheets. Worksheets are printed in a paperback supplement that also includes an access code to the Encounter
Geosystems
website.  The supplement is perforated for homework assignments. It's the ideal companion to your introductory
geoscience course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifesaver for intro Earth Science teachers May 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
There are problems with online texts (as pointed out in the sole review for this product), but in this age of online courses, this lab book has been a lifesaver for my teaching. I really appreciate the exercises and use of Google Earth. It's better than nothing for today's busy students. Of course we'd all love them to take their sweet time doing field work, but it's not practical. I disagree with the two star rating.

I never used the study material in this book. Google Earth gave me fits in my online class, but I received excellent marks for the work done. Go figure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Malfunctions February 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
It could be a great workbook but the software is not there yet. I haven't been able to complete certain lessons because of giant red Xs across the earth, continent spanning black curvy arrows, and what looks like a pair of headphones stretching from pole to pole.
