WHAT IS CARTOGRAF?
Cartograf is an open-source, interactive and collaborative mapping and drawing application, built for students and teachers in Quebec. Anyone can create and share maps, collect and analyze images, and work collaboratively on class projects! Cartograf is not meant for corporate use. See our Tech pages to install your own?.
UPDATE ON BUG for some users: Previous problems with certain web browsers that were not showing the top-menu login box and were preventing maps to load have been traced to a cookie problem. If you delete all Cartograf cookies or reset your browsing data it solves the problem. Switching to a different browser also solves this problem.
