Do you have any hand-drawn maps lurking in your store room from the past 18 months?
Do your students ever compile their own maps?
Story telling through cartography or mapping is a wonderful tool to use in the classroom. SAGTA would like to institute an annual mapping competition for schools and tertiary institutions and as well as for the geospatial industry.
