> Are you aware that GITA offers recreational grade GPS units via a

>
> Additionally, on the GIWIS Education Page, you’ll find a  
> PowerPoint presentation for a GPS Teacher’s Workshop as well as  
> lesson plans. The secondary lesson plan focuses on Urban Heat  
> Islands utilizing GPS receivers as data collection tools.

> I second the referral to the Trimble site but also wanted to add

> resources on geodesy (the supporting science for GPS). The site  
> (link provided below) contains wonderful tutorials as well as  
> lesson plans.
