What is a Lunchless Learn? It’s a hands-on tutorial, held around lunchtime, open to all on campus (without the food).
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.
This series gives people a taste of what GIS is and how it can be used. We are offering the same session at different times and locations, so choose the one that fits your schedule best. These sessions are meant to be self contained; after the intro session–take only the topics that are of interest to you.
Due to the high level of interest in these sessions, we ask you to sign up for each session at http://gisdata.library.dal.ca/workshop/ If you encounter any problems signing up, or if have any other questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
