With the recent signing of a statewide license for the unlimited use of Esri’s ArcGIS software, more than 2.7 million K–12 students in New York State (NYS) now have the opportunity to learn and apply geospatial concepts.
The GIS license agreement includes classroom instruction throughout New York’s K–12 state system and is available to recognized state youth groups, such as the 4-H Club, scouting organizations, and Boys and Girls Clubs.
The license agreement was made possible through the collaborative effort of the New York State GIS Association, New York Institute of Technology (NYIT)/NYS Teacher Centers (NYSTC), and individuals from universities and organizations in New York. Together, this NYS Esri K–12 Consortium is responsible for initiating, coordinating, and promoting Esri GIS K–12 program activities and professional development for teachers throughout New York State.
