Fun with GIS #80: Easy Interactive Geographic Presentations (Esri Schools Program)

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Article source: Charlie Fitzpatrick, Co-Manager, Esri Schools Program

Tired of PowerPoint? Want interactive maps in a presentation? Head to ArcGIS Explorer Online, a web application that uses the free Microsoft Silverlight plug-in for web browsers on either Windows or Macintosh.

Building an interactive presentation is a pretty simple process, but more easily shown in a movie than written out step-by-step. Head to the Esri EdTeam YouTube Channel and see the short movie “Fun with GIS #80.” (Note the other useful videos to explore there as well.)

These interactive presentations can engage both professionally produced data or personally generated content. ArcGIS Explorer Online also has capacity to do SQL queries, even against large data sets (see blog and movie for “Fun With GIS #78“).

With titles, notes, bookmarks, and queries, ArcGIS Explorer Online is a powerful tool for presenting information or letting viewers interact with content to understand it more deeply. Terrific for STEM content (including Social Studies), for sure, but consider also the endless opportunities in the English/ Language Arts arena.
