You can interact these interactive tools into your teaching or you can utilize them to visualize data. The GPS Velocity Viewer tool allows you to explore the motions of Earth’s crust as measured by GPS stations around the globe. To learn about Earth’s geoid, check out the Geoid Height Calculator. (And browse more data access and visualization notebooks!) The Plate Motion Calculator tool calculates the tectonic plate motion at any location on Earth using one or more plate motion models. The PBO H2O Data Portal tool grants access into GPS reflection data to study the water cycle. The GPS Spotlight tool teaches about how GPS is used to investigate faults, volcanoes, water resources, and more.
