The GIS Centre will be holding a repeat of our first installment in the ‘Lunch-less Learn’ series:

First Encounters of the GIS Kind: An Introduction to the Basics of GIS

Tuesday, September 22nd from 12:00 – 1:30pm
Room C318, C Building, Sexton Campus

What is a ‘Lunch-less Learn’ you may ask? It’s a hands-on tutorial held around lunchtime, open to all – without the food! This session is an introduction for people with little or no experience in GIS. We will be using ArcGIS software. The session will give users the basics that are assumed for any of the other tutorials in the series.

A GIS, or Geographic Information System, is “a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, integrating, manipulating, analyzing and displaying data relating to positions on earth’s surface” (www.geo.ed.ac.uk). In other words, it’s an easy and fun way to look at the world differently. Think Google Earth. Think OnStar.

Due to a high level of interest, we ask that you contact the GIS Centre to reserve a space. For more information visit our website.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a repeat of the first session given at the Killam Library. This session will be repeated at the Killam Sept 28 from 12 to 1:30.
