I was going to post a formal invite for everyone to come join us on GIS Day here is Savannah (for those that like the formalities see below), but I decided to write something off the top of my head, which may be dangerous. Just in case you forgot GIS Day is November 19, 2014.
We have a great time educating area 8th graders about GIS, it applications and how many different career utilized it. We have people and organizations from all over come and help us educate the young minds of the Savannah area. In 2013 we did a live map of the birth place of all attendees, and as you can see people come from all over the globe to attend our event!
We have a great time and put on a great and fun event!! Come and join us and partake in all the excitement here in Savannah!!
