Interactive video lesson plan for: Mapping Patagonia | Best Job Ever

Activity overview:

Ross Donihue and Marty Schnure set out to create the first map of the future Patagonia National Park on a National Geographic Young Explorers grant. Their goal was to create an interactive map to give people an on-the-ground perspective of what it's like to stand in one of the most ecologically critical areas of Patagonia, where a new national park is being created. They didn’t just make a paper map, Schnure explains. “We made 360-degree panoramas from scenic overlooks or the summits of peaks, a detailed geospatial database to assist park staff with land management decisions, a waterproof map and guide, and an interactive map to engage a global audience.” #bestjobever
