Expedition ES - Go outside on a mapping expedition! Turn your Palm or Visor into a portable surveying instrument with the power of a computer. How high is that tree, mountain, building? How high did the model rocket fly? How far is it across the river, lake, canyon? What's the distance between those places on opposite sides of that hill? Does the altitude and azimuth of that star match that given for Vega in a planetarium program? All of these can be done in the field.
Export the data records to memos in CSV format and input them into a PC spreadsheet such as Microsoft Excel. Use the data with compass and straightedge to create maps on your own of the areas. Participate or compete in fun and educational activities in cartography.
