GEOGRAPHY students became record breakers when they took part in the world’s biggest data mapping event.

Pupils from Portsmouth High School were involved in a project which was supported by the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) in conjunction with Esri UK.

Geography students from the 24 GDST schools and two academies plotted location data on a Geographical Information Systems (GIS) map alongside answers to questions about life in their local area.

More than 11,500 students took part, including 200 from Portsmouth High School - a new Esri world record.
