MARS YARD MAPS REFERENCE

Accessing the map manager

If you are teacher or group leader guiding young people through Mars Lab missions, you will almost definitely need to create at least one Mars Yard Map. When you book your Mars Lab mission a Mars Lab login account will be created for you that will give you access to the Mars Yard Maps Management system.

Once logged in to the Map Manager you will be able to:

  • create maps for your classes to use in their missions
  • add users (eg. individual students or small mission teams) to your account and give them full or limited access to one or more of your maps
  • have all map data entered by your students emailed to your inbox for your reference
  • electronically submit a class mission-ready map to the Mars Lab for approval prior to your mission day.

Accessing the Mars Yard Maps Manager follow these steps:

1.
Select Mars Yard Maps from the RESOURCES menu

If you login details are correct you will be taken to the MYM Map Manager screen. There are 3 options:

  • My maps
  • My users
  • My account.

If you do not see the Map Manager screen but instead see only the My Maps screen, your account is no a manager level account. Contact the Mars Lab team to upgrade your account if necessary.
