Free Mapping Software for Students & Educators through Coronavirus Closures


Sharing is Caring

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS (USA) - The Maptitude Team today announced continuing free access to Maptitude mapping software and learning resources for students and educators. Access to the popular Maptitude GIS (Geographic Information System) supports K-12 and higher education students who can no longer access school computers during the COVID19 pandemic.

The ease-of-use and core mapping tools and data provided in Maptitude facilitate adoption of GIS by a broader range of students. In addition, Maptitude can run completely offline, and would be a solution for those students that have a poor internet connection, a factor that has been attributed to a lack of geographical knowledge (U.S. Students Are Really Bad at Geography).

Maptitude has proven to be an excellent tool for students studying GIS, business geography, location intelligence, health, and environmental issues. Maptitude integrates well with other vendor products such as Esri, and natively supports formats such as Shapefiles and GeoJSON. This allows students to get up and running quickly with a professional GIS, while being able to use the software at school and at home for coursework and research.

Free access to extensive learning materials is also provided.
