The Wyoming Student Atlas is now available and will be distributed for free, by the Wyoming Geographic Alliance, to K-12 schools and libraries around the state of Wyoming. The purpose of the student atlas is to provide K-12 students and teachers with resources that will aid in learning more about Wyoming geography while at the same time increasing students' spatial awareness and critical thinking skills.
The Atlas is a full color, soft-cover book containing fifty six 9”x12” pages of maps, graphics, tables and associated information, including important facts about Wyoming and map reading skills. Categories in physical geography include geology, climate, water, wildlife and many others; categories in human geography include human settlement and historic points of interest, population change, land ownership, and many maps related to economic, political, and cultural geography.
The Wyoming Student Atlas was produced by WyGISC in partnership with UW’s Department of Geography and the Wyoming Geographic Alliance and published in November, 2014. Please see the Wyoming Geographic Alliance website to request copies for education.
The Wyoming Student Atlas is the first of three primary products envisioned as part of the recently launched Atlas of Wyoming Project, the others being a comprehensive large-format hardcover atlas book and an accompanying digital, Web-based map viewer.
