What is Cartograf? It is an open-source, interactive web-based mapping and drawing application. It allows students and teachers to create and share maps, collect and analyze images, and work collaboratively on class projects!

IMPORTANT NEWS:
Chrome no longer works when in the SVG image editor. On Windows use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge instead. On Mac Safari is best.

Also, to limit hits on map servers, please use the Zoom tool or "Shift" key to zoom. See HELP page



TEACHERS AREA for tips and tricks

REQUIREMENTS, bugs, TROUBLESHOOTING:
If anything goes wrong... click the HOME link at top! Then go back into your saved map.
Other notes:
A modern computer browser works best: Microsoft Edge, Safari 8+
(Internet Explorer 10/11 & Firefox have issues only with the image editor.)
On tablets you may need to first "Request the Desktop version". Also, to place points on tablets you must zoom very, very, very (did I say very?) close, and then use a two-finger click.
