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 is a series to give people a taste of what GIS is and how it can be used. To accommodate more people we are offering the same session at different times and locations. 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, we ask you to sign up for session(s). Due to construction on the Sexton Campus, all sessions will be held in Room G70, Killam Library, Studley Campus. To sign up, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
