Give your students a real world geospatial education

You use spatial technology every single day. Google Maps, GPS, location services on your phone - and that's just scratching the surface. It's an industry and an area of technology that is booming.

 

Map My School makes this technology accessible to students and allows them to experience a highly relevant real world application. The hands-on nature, and ownership that students take of the project, gives them a crucial taste of what a career in STEM might look like.

Expert Help

Online PD can be frustrating if you don't have access to live support. So that is what we give you (live support, not the frustration!)

 

We have fortnightly Ask the Expert calls, where you can get on a video call with one of our team and ask questions. We also have a Facebook Group where you can get help too! We are never far away from being able to help, with real people!
