Grab your favorite device and be mapping…fast! If you need fast maps that relate to classroom content, have a look at our 20 Minute GIS map series! You can access the maps from any device: your computer, iPhone, iPad or other internet-enabled devices. Perhaps you’d like to explore Presidential elections, where your breakfast came from, or understand earthquakes with a little poetry, there’s a map for that! Crank up your device’s internet browser and click to http://www.gisetc.com/20minGIS/index2.html.
If you like apps, then you can use the Esri ArcGIS app to access the maps also. Search for “20 minute GIS.” You and your students are mapping in a jiffy! After they see the cool maps, they can create some of their own to enhance and analyze a great discussion you’re having in class. If you like a virtual globe, those layers are available at ArcGIS.com also with the same search words. Lots of free maps and data layers to get your students thinking with a map!
