A complete Analysis Mission includes:

  • The question driving your analysis
  • The steps to search the VS database for the data you need
  • The steps to do this analysis, including the programs we need to use (Numbers, Excel) and math concepts that we might need to review (averages)
  • How challenging do you think this Analysis Mission is? Rate it. (Consider the number of steps, the number of concepts, and the number of different programs required)
  • Analysis: Change over time would be an example of an easier mission (2 on our scale of 1 to 5). It requires using the Vital Signs map and advanced search to visualize change over time.

    Analysis: Lake Vulnerability requires a few more steps as well as more sources of data. It's a little more challenging (4 on our scale of 1 to 5).

Optional parts to include:

  • Project ideas for sharing results
  • Photos and screen shots that guide us and get us excited about your Mission
  • Field Missions that collect the data you need
  • A quick How-To Guide like this one
