Northwestern University is developing MyWorld, a GIS program specifically designed for interactive learning in middle school through college classrooms. Using this software students can access data bases and plot information atop of their maps. The easy-to-use interface and simple design allow students to begin making maps and exploring data with minimal training. Now students can spend their time visualizing data, composing maps and analyzing geographic patterns.
