Geografía interactiva para un aprendizaje activo


What is
Geointeractiva?

Geointereactiva is an application designed to promote interactive learning that differs from the rote learning model. The tools enable adaptive use of the work elements under the user’s own criteria.

It is a digital tool that promotes creativity in the field of geography and cartography, as well as in other disciplines, by offering critical and creative interaction.

The map design is intended for educational use and is not a strictly technical platform. In this line, both the application menus and the map objects have been given an appealing design to encourage intuitive learning of the geography of any area in the world.

Geointeractiva is ideal for anyone who’s interested in interactive maps. We are continuously adding new tools and functions to improve the user experience.

Tools

Tools menu

Import files, organize data and control any customizable attribute of the map through this editor.

info
Marker

The Markers tool enables the user to place objects to georeference points on the surface of the planet on the map. It is also a graphic, audiovisual presentation tool. Markers can be edited and grouped into categories to make a presentation format.

info
Layers menu

This menu allows you to create maps with unique layer combinations. The physical and political features of the map can be combined according to your needs. Each map object (e.g. capes and headlands / coastal relief) is easily distinguishable from the other map elements (image, point, text, and line).

info
Open source maps

Allows you to import any open source map and combine it with the custom elements created by the user.

info
Generate regions

By activating this tool, which works similarly to the Polygon, you can compare the area and shape of two countries of distant latitudes. Drag and change their latitude to see the effects it has in the Pseudo-Mercator projection that we use on Geointeractiva maps.

info
Measuring tool

This enables straight-line measuring of longitudes in kilometres or miles by setting the stages of the trip with every click of the mouse, and area calculation by linking the starting and end points of the segments created. Both measurements can be saved as objects in an interactive layer.
