Online Geographic Information Systems (G.I.S)

Online GIS systems  are tools allow users to  access virtial maps and globe, such as Google Maps and Google Earth. Users can add resources such as   simple placemarks to more copmplex data such as images and video. They can create interactive queries (user created searches), and resources that analyse geographic and spatial information, edit data, maps, and present and interpret the results of all these operations.   Gioogle GIS tools can offer great activities and resources for all subjects. Their sscope and reach is so wide  they fact they can be seen as a platform for learning. Please have a  look at the links for some examples.
