Hi I am creating a project with the arcGIS software but I am unsure on what topics I should investigate... If you have any ideas please let me know! :)

Hello msher,

One way to find ideas for topics is to browse the Science Buddies project database. In addition to browsing, you could also use the search function.

You might also just use the search bar at the top right of the page. For example, I search for "arcGIS" and found several "Eureka" news items:

I will also cross-post your question to the grades 9-12 Physical Sciences forum in case those experts have some suggestions.

Let us know what you find and if you have more questions!

Since ArcGIS is some kind of software for working with maps and geographic information. Why don't you try on experiments about our earth climate changes?

Hello Msher11,

Science Buddies has a searchable database with over 1200 science projects. Here's a link that shows you 42 science projects which include some aspect of climate change. You might find several of these projects which seem appropriate for using arcGIS. You could create your own project by combining the features which interest you from several projects.

Let us know what you find and one or more of the Science Buddies experts will be glad to help you define your project!
