The mission of the U.S. Geological Survey's Education and Communications Program is to educate data users in the use and application of USGS products and services. In support of that mission, the program:

Instructs educators in the use of teaching with and about geographic information systems (GIS) and other geographic technologies (remote sensing, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) in the K-12, community college, and university curricula through the use of online guidelines, online courses, and hands-on training events.

1. Provides spatial data to support the teaching with geospatial technologies in the curriculum.

2. Provides lessons that use geospatial technologies in the curriculum.

3. Provides guidelines as to how to use USGS and spatial data from other organizations in educational lessons.

For information on how to use these resources in the curriculum, contact:
