Esri provides extensive no-cost access to ArcGIS technology for use by K-12 institutions, and low-cost access for post-secondary educational use. Latitude Geographics offers a similar program to remove barriers to access for educators who wish to integrate installed Geocortex software into their curriculum and research. The core objectives of the Geocortex for Educational Use Program are to help students learn about the power of web mapping and get experience working with industry-leading application development tools that make use of geographic information.
At Latitude Geographics, we believe that our technology can help make the world a better place. Geocortex software can serve as a powerful asset to help make important decisions that impact real people, the natural world, and society at large.
There are many nonprofit and charitable organizations that have talented people and important mandates; but as registered nonprofit organizations they find themselves with limited funds. We believe deeply in the importance of organizations that strive for positive social and environmental change, and our Geocortex for Nonprofit Organizations Program can provide support by alleviating cost barriers.
