 As part of Geography Awareness Week, Rob Langston and his Neelin students are participating in the 2013 GIS Day.

In the morning there will be an activity taking place in room 10 with GeoManitoba, Neelin GIS students and students from ACC. In the afternoon Neelin is hosting a conference with students from ACC, Crocus and Neelin.
 
“GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
 
The first formal GIS Day took place in 1999. Esri president and co-founder Jack Dangermond credits Ralph Nader with being the person who inspired the creation of GIS Day. He considered GIS Day a good initiative for people to learn about geography and the uses of GIS. He wanted GIS Day to be a grassroots effort and open to everyone to participate.”
