Faculty, staff and students are not required to log-in with a user name and password, however, their work will not be saved using this method which is located in the middle of the SimplyMap log-in page - "Sing in as a guest" (your work will not be saved).
Since there is some training required in order to understand a few concepts related to mapping, we highly recommend that you watch our 6 minute training video to get the most out of SimplyMap. The training video can be accessed by clicking on the "Help" link in the top right corner of SimplyMap.
