Get Students Active
- Mappt is a great excuse to get students out of the classroom and into the field.
- By giving students a more hands on experience, they are more likely to understand how GIS applications are affecting the way we work in the field, than by reading it from a website or textbook.
- Mappt’s offline capability means our mobile GIS mapping software can accompany you on field trips, as it will work in remote locations without WiFi or 4G.
- Mappt’s geofencing tool marks out inclusion and exclusion zones to prevent your students wandering off in the field.
- If they breach a geofence an alarm will notify them and the event will be logged in Mappt.
- Geofences are essential for marking out sites such as dangerous areas, heritage listed land or just to let them know they have ventured too far.
Easy and Personal
- Because of the easy to navigate interface, students should be able to pick up an Android tablet or phone and master our mobile GIS in minutes.
- Students can customise the data they collect through colours, attributes, and line styles, making them create a personal and completely unique dataset.
- Because Mappt is downloaded onto Android devices, it’s light and agile enough to be stored in a student’s bag and carried around all day, unlike other field-specific computers.
- Mappt’s mobile GIS features will reinforce spatial mathematics concepts with practical exercises and give science and geography students a cutting edge way to collect field data.
- The features will also assist with area management, mineral exploration and environmental studies.
- Geospatial software is exploding into industries worldwide, so give your students some much needed experience working with GIS.
Drop Down Forms
- Drop down forms are used in the attributes feature to create a list of options to choose from when recording information.
- For example, if you want students to search for specific minerals you can create a drop down form listing the ones you want your team to find. Once a mineral on the list has been found, they can select it from the list as opposed to typing in the name every time.
- Drop down forms cut down repetitive tasks, reduce human errors, and give you consistent data faster.
- Once back online, students can easily send their data to Google Maps or Google Earth and then embed it into a website in just a few taps.
- Alternatively, students can send you their collected data via email or upload it onto Google Drive directly from Mappt.
