NYC Public Schools Expand Use of ArcGIS Software

A district site license from Esri provides unlimited access to GIS for the New York City Department of Education (DOE). An article from Esri says the district will work to incorporate GIS instruction in the classroom in the future.
Charlie Fitzpatrick, Esri K–12 schools program manager, says “Using GIS, students in all grades can explore and analyze the world, integrating information, concepts, and skills across disciplines.Whether looking around the globe or focusing on their own block, GIS analysis demonstrates the patterns and relationships that make up their world. Building twenty-first-century skills establishes opportunities for their personal future and can help their community today.”
