Q: Why does my school map show my school in the wrong location?

The school location is based on the latitude, longitude and elevation of your school. To visit your school's page, move your mouse over the "Go To" on the top bar and select your school from the list. Verify the location of your school on the "Organization Map" on the bottom right corner of the page on your school's page. If your location needs to be corrected, select "Manage," and then in the drop down menu, select "Control Panel." When you are in the Control Panel, you will see Users and Organizations on the left side. Click on "Users and Organizations," and then click on the name of your school to view its information. On the right hand side of the screen, you will see a menu, from that menu select "Edit" which will open another page with a menu on the right hand side that says "Organization Information". On the righthand side of the screen, you will see a menu that says "GLOBE Info." You can enter the correct information for your school's latitude, longitude, and elevation into the fields provided. Be sure to select the "Save" button if you modify any information.

Q: Why don't I see myself listed under my school's page?

Users are not listed on a school page until their account has been approved. To see the status of your account, click on your name on the top right of the browser window then select "My Account". You will be taken to your account page. Select "GLOBE User Groups" from the options on the right. If "GLOBE User Groups" reads "Account Requested", your account has not yet been approved, or you have not yet been accepted to a workshop. If your account remains in this state for an extended time, please contact help@globe.gov to determine if there is an issue.
