Previewing NC GIS LIVE
Open Places: Wild Spaces
Join educators and students, government and the general public in celebrating
GIS Day! GISLiveNC is one of our state’s many contributions to
the GIS Day global event. GIS Day seeks to educate millions of children
and adults about how geography makes a difference in our lives and to
demonstrate GIS technology at schools and organizations around the world.
“Open Places: Wild Spaces ” is the theme and everyone
is encouraged to participate by “tuning in” to the streaming
video webcast. Why not project the webcast onto a screen or wall in
your school or office so everyone can join in the excitement?
Exemplary projects will be presented via the Web on Tuesday, November
15th from 9:00AM. to 1:00PM. EST.
GIS LIVE Team Challenge
See GIS in action and meet teachers and students across our state as
they discover how we can cross boundaries with GIS. Can you, as a GIS
professional, work with a teacher in your area and help them use GIS and
NC OneMap in a skillful problem solving exercise?
Meet the presenters and learn more about their special projects.
Here you will find a wealth of online resources including links to GIS
online mapping opportunities.
