And good projects can become great by engaging the power of GIS. These were just three lessons demonstrated by the school group on stage during the Monday plenary of… (Show more)

I had a student go on a hike and collect points along the way with an EFS. Most of the points include an image. We'd now like to use these photos to highlight the beautiful sites along the trail, and a Map Tour seems the best option for our audience.  I know we can download the EFS data as a CSV, but when doing that you don't get the image… (Show more)

It's #TeacherAppreciationWeek, and Tuesday is #NationalTeacherDay. As if all the thanks teachers deserve could be distilled into one week, much less a single day. They don't do it for thanks, and certainly not for money. It is for most a calling, a drive to help others develop. They change the world, one learner at a time, 15 or 50 or 150 per… (Show more)
