Abstract. The National Geographic Institute (Instituto Geográfico Nacional, IGN) of Spain is the state mapping agency in charge of the Cartography, Photogrammetry, Astronomy and Geophysics of the country.

The IGN commitment to the education of children and young adults in Earth sciences comes from decades ago. Many educational resources made in the last ten years, related to geography, cartography and Earth science are available in both digital and physical formats.

Educa IGN [1] is the section of IGN main website [2] that hosts the digital educational resources. In 2019, this site has been updated, not only in its contents but also in its appearance and usability. It is possible to filter resources by type, subject and education level.
