GIS mapping is an amazing technology, allowing you, and your kids, to visualize and understand our world in a whole new way. Marking points of interest, mapping the length of features, and measuring the area of space. All of this, and more, are possible when combined into a simple easy-to-read map. So, let’s get started!

The sky is the limit when it comes to creating your own mapping project. As you can see in the training video, my kids and I created a simple map of our small acreage near Cheyenne. But, that’s only one idea! Take MapItFast along when you walk the dog, explore your local park, or go for a drive. After you’ve experimented with GIS mapping, we’d love to see what you’ve created. So, take a quick (30 second – 1 minute) video of your kids telling us about what they learned while creating their map. Send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. By sending us your video before May 15, 2020, you will be entered into our GIS Mapping Contest and eligible for some fun prizes!
