Links to download the latest cross-platform, web-enabled versions of the Dynamic Digital Map of the Dynamic Digital Map of a Costa Rica Field Trip are found below.

The Dynamic Digital Map of Costa Rica is based off a course entitled "The Geology of Costa Rica", offered through Castleton State College in Castleton, VT in the summer of 2007. This map however is not geology specific. It is aimed at the full experience from the trip. Through this map the user can explore the four most active volcanoes in Costa Rica, see the sights in the tropical Cloud Forest, learn about the geology of certain areas, take in the beauty of Fortuna Falls, and even see the monkeys bounce through the trees in Manuel Antonio National Park on the coast. See what a dozen students were lucky enough to experience for two weeks at the beginning of their summer break. Thinking of traveling to Costa Rica? This map could also serve as a place to get some ideas on places to go and things to see. With nearly 100 pictures and several videos as well this map is definitely worth a look! .
