Welcome to the GODI website. This site was created in order to facilitate communication between the participants and leaders of the Great Outdoors Digital Indoors workshop.

The Great Outdoors Digital Indoors is an exciting new project combining the excitement of field work in a national park with innovative new technology to help interpret the data collected. It brings experimental science and technology together in a way that allows teachers and students to use both in the classroom.

  Look for us at the VSTE conference in Roanoke in March, 2004.  There will be a GODI presentation, as well as a presentation featuring GIS/GPS use at Thomas Harrison Middle School in Harrisonburg.

The .pdf files below are the handouts from that latter session.  Thanks to Lori Lineweaver and Corinne Warns for sharing these activities.


The Great Outdoors Digital Indoors is a collaborative effort between the Integrated Science and Technology Program at James Madison University and the Education Department at Shenandoah National Park.  Funding provided by No Child Left Behind funds administered by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.  We are also appreciative of GIS software contributions by ESRI, Inc.
