ESRI gain advantage in UK education

Vector 1 reports the new A Level teaching resource jointly released by the Geographical Association and ESRI UK.

Produced by the GA (Geographical Assoc) in collaboration with ESRI (UK), the book is a complete guide to the theory and application of GIS, with five practival exercises described step-by-step. It includes ESRI ArcView 9.2 software with a 12-month license, plus DVD of map data for England.

Just think thousands of A level students learning to use GIS with ESRI software. Based upon the keynote that the kids from Leeds Grammar gave at the last ESRI EMEA user conference, these kids are already able to make good use of the software. Now what products will they choose when they move into professional roles in the future? 

So where are the other vendors? One up to Angela Baker at ESRI.
