A complete collection of digital interactive GIS
(Geographic Information Systems) based classroom maps for teaching all
grade levels of geography. GIS maps allow the user to view, analyze,
interpret, and compare geographical data. Each map can be projected onto a
screen, displayed on an interactive whiteboard, or viewed on a computer
Includes the Following:
All maps included in the GIS classroom package feature multiple layers of information that can be turned on or off with the click of a mouse. For example, deactivate political layers and then turn on physical layers to display a physical map. GIS maps have more advanced capabilities such as the ability to do geographic comparisons between two layers, measure distances, and easily identify geographic features.
The flexibility of multiple information layers also allows the instructor to create custom maps relevant to the geography lesson plan. This enables teachers to meet the needs of students at every ability level by displaying only the necessary information.
Each map in this series is viewed using ESRI's Arc Reader software. This advanced GIS digital mapping software application has an extensive array of tools that allow full interaction with each map.
Key tools include:
A school wide site license means you can install the software on every machine in the school or make it available on your school network rather than purchase an individual copy for each computer.
