Strand Map Service Wiki

This is the home page for the Strand Map Service and Science Literacy Maps.

The Strand Map Service (SMS) provides technology for creating visual interactive concept browsing interfaces based on the learning goals articulated in Benchmarks for Science Literacy (AAAS 1993). End-user interfaces that are created using the service enable users to browse the concept space, discover educational resources that support the learning goals and view additional information related to the concepts.
