This software was built to provide users the ability to directly transfer data between Garmin GPS handheld receivers and various GIS software packages. It can be used as an extension in ArcGIS, or as a standalone software package. The software exports GPS data to various formats, including: .gpx, .kml, and .shp
Photo2GPS is a software program that allows users to easily integrate digital photographs with a GPS tracklog. The software synchronizes the both the GPS clock with the clock on your digital camera. Note that as of March 2010, this software is only compatible with Windows XP (not compatible with Vista and Windows 7).
The Landsat Program is a series of Earth-observing satellite missions jointly managed by NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey. Since 1972, Landsat satellites have collected information about Earth from space. This science, known as remote sensing, has matured with the Landsat Program.
Landsat satellites have taken specialized digital photographs of Earth’s continents and surrounding coastal regions for over three decades, enabling people to study many aspects of our planet and to evaluate the dynamic changes caused by both natural processes and human practices.

This is a little more involved beginner level GPS activity than Activity #1. Students must be familar with taking and finding waypoints. It is basically a safe geocaching activity tha can be done on any high school campus.
