TODAY IS GIS DAY
GIS.. Geographic Information System… A simple three letter phrase that describes a system that has come to affect every aspect of our lives. From our GPS systems to Google Maps, GIS systems are integrated in everything and serve to make our lives easier every single day. Thanks to this amazing science, we are able to have our deliveries made on time, and get straight to the house of a new friend without getting lost, even though we’ve never been there before. GIS is a truly amazing thing!
How to celebrate GIS Day
There’s a lot of fun ways to celebrate GIS day, starting with researching all the ways this incredibly technology has affected our lives. Take a trip to somewhere you’ve never been, using a GPS system to guide you, research the topography of campgrounds and mountains around your area, or see how an area has changed over the years.
