For many of us, our last brush with geography was in middle school when we were asked to color in maps of various regions that we were studying, and we haven’t given it much thought since then. Well, times have changed, and all kinds of things in our daily lives from traffic signals to maps on the Internet, are made possible by Geographic Information Systems.
Want to learn more about it? Join our GIS and Data Services Staff for a series of workshops this fall. They’re free, and you’ll learn cool new ways to map data. It may inspire you to create some maps to add to our GIS mapping display. So much more awesome than just colored-in country outlines!
