GIS for Projects – even during COVID

Learn the basics of survey design, data collection, and simple mapping to support your classroom or club project. Even during a pandemic, students can safely collect and map data to help address a problem or project. Learn the tools and methods to collecting data when most (or all) of your students are learning from home.

This session will focus on ArcGIS Online and Survey123 in K-12 and informal education. All software and instructional resources used are offered at no-cost for youth instruction.
