Global Perspectives is a remote sensing and world issues site. Remotely-sensed images and other geospatial information can reveal multiple aspects of an event such as war, natural disaster, or economic change. This realization that satellite images and other geospatial information can illustrate a great deal of interrelated information has brought to education a trend toward interdisciplinary curricula for the study of current events. Therefore, Global Perspectives features interdisciplinary modules, which include remotely-sensed imagery to convey concepts that involve global- and regional-scale patterns. Students also use Problem-Based Learning to conduct real-world investigations to think about solutions to various problems around the world.
