For International Map Day on February 3, Santa Barbara–based Maps.com honored aviation trailblazer and feminist icon Amelia Earhart with a suite of free products for educators and history buffs. The company created a digital Story Map, an educational Lesson Map, and a printable Story Map that traces Earhart’s fateful last flight. “We enjoy helping people gain an understanding of maps and geography as a way to inspire big picture thinking,” said Maps.com CEO John Glanville. “Geography and maps offer an exciting way to expand knowledge, spark curiosity, and inspire insights, all while gaining a deeper appreciation of what it takes to explore uncharted territories — as epitomized by Ms. Earhart.”
