About this talk

Often times, analyzing the history and evolution of the Earth requires on-site exploration. But, sometimes, gaining access to a site is simply not feasible. That’s why virtual field trips are the next best thing. With digital tools, geoscientists can still analyze their area of interest from their computer desks using maps, outcrop photos, cross-sections, and more. It’s just a matter of finding the right digital tools to help. In this webinar, you will learn more about how to conduct a field trip virtually and how Geofacets can make your time more productive. Plus, you will see how to integrate maps and other information into Google Earth to conduct your virtual field trip and further analyze your area of interest. Sandra Merten, Senior Product Manager of Geofacets, will demonstrate how to: •Use digital tools to explore an area of interest virtually •Find maps, outcrop photos, cross-sections, and associated article information quickly using Geofacets to get up to speed on the geological setting of a field trip area •Use Google Earth to gain geospatial insights •Download figures, tables and associated citation information from Geofacets to gain further insights on interesting field locations and manage source references Geofacets is the largest, most comprehensive solution of its kind, and helps organizations optimize time, money, and talent.
