Give your students the geographic advantage

The GIS for Schools program brings industry leading software to P-12 schools across Australia. Interactive maps created using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) make learning come alive in mainstream subjects—geography, history, science, environmental studies, agriculture—and beyond.

Using mapping technology in the classroom illustrates geographic context, helping students connect lessons with real places. Spatial analysis and critical-thinking skills prepare young minds to succeed in studies, further education, and most importantly, life.

Every public, private, home school, and youth-serving club is eligible for the program.

The GIS for Schools program includes:

ArcGIS Online organisational and user accounts (50, 500 or 2000 users)

ArcGIS Online is cloud-based GIS software, with no prior installation necessary, where students can use, create and share maps and apps. Your organisation account also provides access to the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World—a great resource for the classroom.

Ready-to-use web and mobile apps

Extend GIS with specialised apps—Survey123 for ArcGIS, Story Maps, ArcGIS Maps for Office, Community Analyst, Operations Dashboard and more.

ArcGIS Advanced licenses

ArcGIS Pro is the next-generation desktop application: a powerful new addition to the GIS toolbox. Great for schools who want to take their GIS to the next level.

Esri's 2020 User Conference

Free for teachers and students

Esri’s 2020 User Conference – to be held July 13 to 15 – is moving to a virtual format. The event will include Plenary sessions, technical workshops, user sessions, an Expo, and unique networking events.

This year, registration is complimentary for any K-12 school with a current GIS for Schools Bundle.

Your school can register an unlimited number of participants, meaning anyone can attend. In order to register your faculty and staff for full-conference access, you will need to provide your institution’s Customer Number.

This can also be distributed and shared among any users, including students; The MyEsri administrator determines permissions to grant, so providing someone with your Customer Number does not automatically provide access to all licences or to Technical Support.
