Academic Partner Program

Avenza Maps is a cost-effective platform suitable for all levels of education. Educators can use it as a teaching tool that combines a spectrum of mapping technologies to teach the next generation of professionals. Researchers can use it to collect and evaluate data from a variety of sources to model geographical phenomena. Students can enhance their learning with new mapping tools and reinforce mapping techniques that involve creating maps for digital use, sharing maps, and collecting data in the field for projects.

Avenza collaborates with the academic, non-profit, and research community to provide mapping software products ideally suited for GIS education and instruction.

For academic organizations and instructors, equip your students with Avenza mapping software and integrate it into your curriculum. Many colleges and universities around the world teach MAPublisher.
