This page is intended to help schools and educators to get started with GIS.
1. Obtain an ArcGIS license from ESRI. The KGA has the necessary link located on our GIS ESRI License page. This license is free for schools. The ArcGIS for Schools Bundle contains ArcGIS Online and several other extensions and apps for use in the classroom. 2. After obtaining a license become familiar with GIS through the use of tutorials and resources. Both of these are contained within the KGA's GIS in the Classroom section. These tutorials and resources are a mixture of lessons, videos, trainings, webinars, and activities. 3. Start creating projects using ArcGIS Online. The KGA provides a list of places to potentially find data for ArcGIS projects on our GIS Data Sources page.
