Online tools for teachers
There are many online resources that educators can use to get started with spatial tools in the classroom. Often the most accessible tools are online, interactive mapping sites.
For example, you could view:
- an interactive map of Australian Government data
- weather information represented across the globe
- a map that shows the location of over 500,000 species on Earth
- hazard maps of Australia's bushfires
- locations of the world's earthquakes.
Other tools allow you to:
- annotate maps using Scribble Maps
- create maps, import data and display that data using Google's My Maps
- create a simple Google Earth tour using an online tool.
- Incorporate spatial technologies into your classroom using the Queensland Spatial Educators' Toolkit.
- Use our mapping, data and imagery resources including Queensland Globe.
- Explore Queensland's topography using QTopo.
