GIS Iceland


We’re excited to share with you our brand new innovative resource that brings you the sights and sounds of Iceland, straight to your classroom.

Join Simon Ross as he explores Iceland’s most iconic attractions, as well as some lesser known hidden gems across the island.  See how Iceland can be used as a case study for geographers and an ideal destination for an unforgettable and educational school trip.

GIS Iceland consists of videos plotted on a GIS map complete with annotations and descriptions. The satellite view allows you to zoom in and demonstrate to your students how the land of fire and ice has been shaped over time. You’ll see lava fields, the Mid Atlantic ridge and other features that can’t be seen at ground level.
