Reviewers' Remarks


1. Former Geography Department Chair and Professor with an Applied Geography focus:
“The Texas Education Atlas is a treasure trove of data that are translated seamlessly into useful products. They are provided in a very user-friendly environment that allows non technical users, such as students, teachers, administrators, and some policy makers the ability to utilize data, graphs and maps provided at their fingertips with little effort. They can produce materials for a multitude of purposes, including study aids, reports, plans and decision making.”
