Blue Marble recognizes the important role academia plays in preparing today's students for tomorrow's workplace. As the geospatial sector continues its rapid evolution, it is critical that graduates have the skills and aptitude to maintain this momentum. Blue Marble's investment in GIS programs through this generous licensing policy is motivated by a desire to ensure that instruction on the fundamentals of geographic information science is not curtailed for budgetary reasons and that GIS technology is accessible for all students.

Global Mapper and Geographic Calculator are ideally suited for classroom use. Both offer an intuitive layout underlining their ease-of-use, which allows instructors to focus on the practical application of the principles of geospatial data processing and analysis, not countless hours of software instruction.
