DLESE Earth Science Literacy Maps are a tool for teachers and students to find resources that relate to specific Earth science concepts. These maps illustrate connections between concepts and how they build upon one another across grade levels. Clicking on a concept within the maps will show DLESE resources related to the concept, as well as information about related AAAS Project 2061 Benchmarks and National Science Education Standards.

The DLESE Earth Science Literacy Maps interface was created by Digital Learning Sciences and NCAR Library using the NSDL Strand Map Service (SMS). The NSDL Strand Map Service (SMS) was produced by researchers from the University of Colorado at Boulder and Digital Learning Sciences under NSF grants 0734889, 0226286 and is based on the strand maps developed by Project 2061 at the American Association for the Advancement of Science and published in the Atlas of Science Literacy, Volumes 1 and 2 (2001 and 2007, AAAS Project 2061 and the National Science Teachers Association).
