My World GIS: Explore data about your world

Geographic Data for Learners

My World GIS™ is a Geographic Information System (GIS) designed specifically for use in educational settings.  My World allows learners to explore and analyze geographic data about our world.

My World's intended audience is middle school through college geosciences and geography courses involving investigations of geographic data.

My World is designed to meet the needs of students and teachers while keeping the constraints of educational settings in mind.  It combines the power of a full-featured GIS environment with the support and structure required by novice users in an educational environment.
