Data Classroom



What kinds of information go into GIS maps? Your study in the Data Classroom will explore something called "data formats". Very important if you save information about almost anything that you may want to share in the future.

Data Formats determin how you save information you gather. Whether it is information about your school garden, about an environmental issue or about history, data which you gather for a GIS map has to be stored on a computer in a way other computers can use and especially in a way that the software which makes GIS maps can read.
