Review Date: April 29, 2006

Description: eSchoolMaps offers a large collection of clipart maps that can be customized and edited for education use. Our outline maps, which are available on CD-ROM, are an ideal teaching tool for any grade level. Available in PowerPoint and EPS Adobe Illustrator formats, our maps can be tailored for student worksheets, classroom lessons and group projects. We provide a full range of maps, including: the United States, North America, world regions, world projections and many individual countries. Each state and country in every map is an individual element, allowing users to modify the image for specific assignments. Using PowerPoint or Illustrator, students and teachers can select states or countries, pull out sections, color, insert or delete text, draw lines and boxes or add color to highlight specific areas. Maps are royalty free for print and electronic use. Our collection also includes an extensive number of JPG and GIF maps, which are perfect for student reports, projects and web sites. These maps include world projections, world regions and more than 200 country maps and flags.

Jackie's Review: Upon hearing of this new cd-rom, I was very excited to try it out. Being a former state grantee working in Michigan's Early Intervention program and then again with Michigan's Parent Training project, I found one thing to be true: there was quite a shortage of customizable maps.  I was always "stuck" with the creator's fonts, colors, or regions. Since trying Bruce Jones' map collection, I can honestly say that I'll never have that problem again.  My map search is finally over!  Using eSchoolMaps extensive library on cd-rom, users can separate or "pull out" pieces of maps, color and customize states, countries or regions, change fonts, resize...you name it.  The  (PC Windows and Mac compatible) cd-rom includes maps in many formats: PowerPoint, EPS, JPG, BMP and GIF.  Maps include USA, states, world, globes, regions, countries, and CIA World Fact Book maps and flags.  No classroom should be without this collection.  Students will be delighted to find that this cd-rom contains virtually every map they'll ever need for class projects and homework requirements.  I would recommend this product to any educator or parent that has a student whose studies require the use of maps.
