Google Maps Gallery

This new display in the Geography room showcases digital maps created by students in the senior school. There are maps about various topics studied so far this year. The maps include a Year 11 student's plans to redevelop an island following a volcanic eruption and research by Year 9 students into the global distribution of billionaires.


The maps feature custom layers of information added by the students using Google Maps Engine. Next term GCSE and AS students will be further developing their skills in digital mapping by using ArcGIS to present their own fieldwork data.
