ArcGIS 10.3 software is now available for free to all K-12 public, private and charter schools throughout Hawaiʻi. The state-of-the-art mapping tool is made available through an ongoing partnership between Maui Economic Development Board’s Women in Technology and ESRI.

ESRI, the software’s manufacturer, encourages teachers and students to try ArcGIS Online as a more user-friendly alternative. Schools can find out more and register for an organizational account to use the online version. But for more experienced users, the more powerful ArcGIS desktop software can be requested by completing an online survey.

WIT has also launched a new Hawaiʻi K12 GIS Community Hub to engage educators, students and industry partners with school projects, pictures, data, lesson plans, news, tips and more.

“We want it to become the Hawaiʻi GIS Networking Central–the place for Geo Techies to be inspired, stay connected and collaborate,” said Isla Young, WIT’s K12 STEM education director.
