Geographical Information System (GIS) Resources

GIS Resources, what?! Well, we’re quite keen on GIS here at GlobalGeek; one of our writers, Natasha, is a GIS Ambassador. Anyway, in this post I’ll list, and try to update, resources that might help in the classroom. If you’ve got any suggestions, drop them in the comments box.

  • GeoCaching – Hunt for hidden boxes all over the world, they’re everywhere!
  • Teacher GIS Project Ideas – Looking for something to teach GIS with?
  • What3Words – Give your location in 3 words?!
