All of these tools require that you have a google account. (NOTE: You do not have to be part of Google+ to use these tools, but you may need to opt-out of Google+ if you need to create an account)
- Google Scholar
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.
- Google Drive
Allows you to share/collaborate on Documents, spreadsheets, forms, drawings
- Google Maps
Using GoogleMaps allows you to make the most of GIS-related education features without the need for more complicated GIS programs. GMs allows you to create maps that remain "private" (only the people to whom you give the URL can access them) or are made "public" discoverable by anyone searching throughout GoogleMaps.
