GIS for Schools


Engage your child in geographic thinking and GIS
Engage your child in geographic thinking and GIS. They can help advance his/her classroom, college, career, and community opportunities.

Every day, through textbooks, the Internet, and TV, your children explore their world—on foot, by bicycle, in cars. They collect data by the sidewalk and streamside, download videos, and gather information from sources far and wide. They are engaged in geographic inquiry, science investigation, and what ifs—they are curious.

GIS expands your child's natural exploratory activities by bringing questions, geographic data and tools, and analysis together. Through GIS, young people can find their place in a larger world through their personal discoveries and growth.
