Spatial technology includes any software or hardware that interacts with real world locations. Since everything is 'somewhere' on the earth's surface, spatial technologies have a broad range of uses across industry and education.
Whether recording data for a location using GPS (Global Positioning System), exploring the world with NASA's "World Wind" or experiencing a virtual field trip of a city with "Geoflight", there are many worthwhile resources for the classroom that can develop students' understanding of place and space. The most commonly used and effective spatial technology for spatial analysis and investigation is GIS (Geographic Information System).
My Wonderful World www.mywonderfulworld.org is aimed at parents, teachers and students, providing information, games, resources and challenges to improve spatial literacy in an engaging way.
EduSpace, http://www.eduspace.esa.int/ the European Space Agency's Earth Observation site for schools, connects to spatial inormation and lessons including remote sensing. The site links to careers information for students and other opportunities.
