March 15: Compare Map Data Side by Side

On GE Teach you can select from a gallery of map layers to compare data side-by-side. In addition to comparing maps students can use the drawing and measuring tools that you would typically find in Google's My Maps tool. This is a great resource for comparing data sets on a map. Data sets include physical information (i.e. topography, climate, vegetation index, etc.), and human information (population density, economy, religion, life expectancy, etc.).


  1. Go to
  2. Navigate to a map view that will be mirrored on the other side.
  3. Go to "Select Map" to add a visual layer of data to review and/or use the drawing tools to customize the map.
