We strive to be a helpful resource for anyone working with geospatial technologies. We offer a variety of services, products (like our standards-aligned curriculum) and support to meet your needs.


A GeoInquiry is a 15-minute, pre-built activity designed by Esri Education that allows teachers to cover required content using a free, online, interactive map. The activities are standards-based and closely follow the map concepts taught in leading U.S. textbooks.
