2012 Education User Conference Proceedings

The Education User Conference (EdUC) provides a forum for members of the education community to come together and share their GIS experiences and knowledge. Here you will find copies of papers given by EdUC attendees on topics including administration and planning, designing curriculum and degree programs, using GIS in libraries and museums, community projects and partnerships, education research and teacher education, and teaching with GIS. We hope that you will benefit from reading these papers as you apply what you learned at the EdUC to your own work.
