How I Use It
I used this product along with teaching of themes of geography. goal was to help students understand how topography and culture impacts how streets and cities were constructed. Discussion and application also occurred with privacy concerns. Useful applications with demographic concepts were also part of lesson
My Take
Students loved this site and many used it with their individual smartphones to look up addresses of areas where they would like to visit. Very useful tool for students and teachers.
