Using GIS


Key Stage 1


Can you find….your school….your street….your house?

Children can find where they live

It’s as easy as typing in the street name……

And then looking for the house numbers!

Children can then look at an aerial photograph of their house…

Present Day

unit 2 how can we make our local area safer
Unit 2: How can we make our local area safer?

Using other pieces of clip art, or through annotation, children could identify problem areas and make suggestions about how to improve them

e.g. traffic calming methods

one way systems

traffic lights


Label photographs to show aspects related to traffic (QCA)

Key Stage 2

unit 6 investigating our local area
Unit 6:Investigating our local area

QCA unit suggestions:

  • locate local area on progressively larger scale maps;
  • Find school on a map and aerial photograph;
  • Give directions from school to specific points in the locality;
  • Match ground photographs of human and physical features to a base map (use an aerial photograph for clues!);
  • Use a map to list 3 or 4 nearby towns/villages, work out a route and produce a map.

  • GIS-MO could be useful for gathering resources to send to a ‘partner’ school as information about the local area.
  • The future: accessing other authorities GIS software to investigate contrasting localities.
unit 20 local traffic an environmental issue
Unit 20:Local traffic – an environmental issue

This is a 'long' unit. It deals with a local traffic improvement scheme (a by-pass) and the impact it will have on local people and the environment. The unit has been designed so it can be adapted easily for any local issue. The issue could be concerned with other traffic improvement schemes, eg. speed ramps, one-way streets, cycle lanes, pedestrian crossings, routes for handicapped people or a quite different issue, eg a proposal for quarrying, the effect of a hypermarket on existing shops, the effect of demolishing old houses to create a new site with different potential uses like a leisure centre or mosque, building a BMX track.



Before the Bypass


The Bypass

examine maps to investigate the difference the bypass has made
Examine maps to investigate the difference the Bypass has made…

Compare the current edition of the O.S map to historic versions of the maps pre-bypass construction.

  • Copy and paste maps into Textease.
    • Lock them into place on the page.
      • Children can add graphics, annotations/labels, captions, etc.

  • Improving the local area:

overlay the specially designed clip art to make suggestions for change

  • Should the High Street be closed to traffic?

Use a map/aerial photograph to find an

alternate route.

Mark that route on the map using drawing tools

Using Textease
  • Create an image with an associated word bank:

e.g. for Unit 6

an image of the local area

a word bank with words

associated with land uses
