Geospatial technologies consist of geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), and remote sensing. These visual tools open doors for students to ask questions, find answers, create solutions based on what they have learned, and even apply their findings in and around their community.

Comprising 37 geospatial professionals in the state, the GeoEducation subcommittee’s mission is to encourage the use of these technologies in Delaware classrooms by empowering teachers, inspiring students and enhancing education while meeting curriculum standards within the State of Delaware.
