Becoming a Scientist: Interpreting Visual Data

Discuss the variety of ways that data can be visually represented and understood. Dive into habitat structures that fish are most likely to use. Then examine satellite images, hill-shade maps, contour maps, and field notes to describe patterns and infer where potential fishing spots with ideal access points are located.
