The NYS GIS Association Education Committee has launched a web page of resources for teachers  at:

The web page includes:

  • useful websites or data sets for teaching.
  • teaching tips for online or remote learning classes,
  • podcasts with GIS users, and
  • Esri StoryMap resources.

The podcasts are interviews with GIS users from a variety of backgrounds. Education Committee Chair, Dr. Paula Lazrus, interviews people who use GIS in their work, including Susan Hoskins of the School of Integrative Plant Science Soil and Crop Sciences Section at Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Jiin Wen of the New York City Economic Development Corporation. These interviews include the user’s background, how they got where they are, and the role GIS has played in their career.

If you have ideas for additional resources or would like to be interviewed for the podcast series, please contact the Education Committee at:
