#256 Hug a geographer!
But then, of course, you all knew that.
According to GIS Day 2007, "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. More than 80 countries will participate in holding local events such as corporate open houses, hands-on workshops, community expos, school assemblies, and more."
At UVa, the Scholars' Lab staff is celebrating in their own spatial way with a speaker, displays, and a GIS Day cake! Andrew Greene from the Office of the Architect will speak on "GIS at the University Scale: How the Office of the Architect Plans for the Future of UVA using GIS."
Kelly would tell you all about it himself, but he's way too excited on GIS Day Eve.
I plan on celebrating by hugging a geographer.
Yours in celebrating appropriately and geographically,
