2015 Education GIS Conference Proceedings

The Education GIS 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 various topics July 20–24, 2015 in San Diego, California. We hope that you will benefit from reading these papers as you apply what you learned at the EdUC to your own work.
