First Encounters of the GIS Kind: An Introduction to the Basics of Geographic Information Systems
11:30am – 1:00pm
Friday, September 16
Room G70, Killam Library
The GIS Centre is holding the first installment in their “Lunch-less Learn” series. 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 meant for people with little or no experience in GIS. The software we will be using is ArcGIS. This is a building block for our future Lunch-less Learn 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.” In other words, it’s an easy and fun way to look at the world differently.
Due to a high level of interest, we ask that you contact the GIS Centre to reserve a space. Please email Jennifer Strang or Raymond Jahncke at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: This session will be repeated at Sexton Campus on Sept. 19 at noon, and again at the Killam on Sept. 27 at 1 pm. Watch for upcoming announcements about this and other Lunch-less Learn topics!
