Successful Wyoming Atlas Project Launches Digital Version for Wyoming’s K-12 Schools « Back to Search Results
In 2014, the University of Wyoming created a hard-copy version of a new Wyoming Student Atlas, with more than 10,000 copies distributed to all Wyoming school districts. Now, a digital version has been produced.
The Wyoming Student Atlas, now available in a digital flipbook version at http://atlas.wygisc.org, has been used in many geography, earth science and social studies classes in elementary and junior high schools, as well as libraries, across the state.
The digital version, like the hard copy, is produced by three UW programs -- the Department of Geography, the Wyoming Geographic Information Science Center (WyGISC) and the Wyoming Geographic Alliance. The digital 55-page atlas includes more than 100 full-color, interactive maps, along with numerous charts, tables and photographs. The School of Energy Resources provided the funding.
