>
> Folks:
>
> I would like to bring 3 new GIS-based lessons in the ArcLessons  
> library (http://www.esri.com/arclessons) to your attention:
>
> US Presidential Election:  2008 - Revised Edition
> http://gis.esri.com/industries/education/arclessons/ 
> search_results.cfm?id=391
> U.S. Presidential elections are always good times to explore the  
> geography of the United States. These data sets and project files  
> for two GIS software packages - ArcView - (www.esri.com/arcview)  
> and ArcExplorer Java Edition for Education (www.esri.com/aejee)-  
> will give you a start in the exploration.  There are many ways in  
> which to use this data. How would you use this data as a  
> presidential candidate (What issues will be important in which  
> geographic regions?), a campaign strategist (Where do you spend  
> your time and advertising budgets?), or a news analyst trying to  
> identify good story angles (Which states have been "safe" for one  
> party or another, and which have been "battleground" states?).
>
> On the Road Again:  Transportation Analysis in the USA
> http://gis.esri.com/industries/education/arclessons/ 
> search_results.cfm?id=392
> This 70-question lesson and spatial data are to be used with ArcGIS  
> software by ESRI to study the spatial pattern of transportation-- 
> roads, waterways, railroads, and airports, in the USA.  What is the  
> longest interstate highway?  The longest US highway?  How are the  
> highways numbered?  What impact do metropolitan areas have on  
> traffic volume?  What are the busiest roads in your community?
>
> Baseball Radio Station Analysis
> http://gis.esri.com/industries/education/arclessons/ 
> search_results.cfm?id=390
> This 54-question lesson and spatial data are to be used with ArcGIS  
> software by ESRI to study the spatial pattern of radio stations  
> that broadcast major league games of the Kansas City Royals and St  
> Louis Cardinals.  What pattern do they show?  What is the pattern  
> of cities that have major league baseball teams?  This lesson may  
> be especially timely to run now (even though, sadly, the Milwaukee  
> Brewers have lost) during the baseball playoffs and World Series!
>
> Enjoy, and as always, let us know how you use these lessons in your  
> classroom!
