We now have the tools to combine and analyze large, disparate data sets in order to make the data more useful. One very effective and popular way to do this is through Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

Professors now know that they should be incorporating technology and media into their lessons, but figuring how to do that and which forms of media and/or technology to use can be quite daunting for someone whose expertise is in a completely different field of study.
