#352 GIS Day 2008

For those eagerly awaiting the 2008 International GIS Day update, wait no more. Yes, we decorated our GIS Day cake with an aerial photo of Thomas Jefferson’s Academical Village.
The Scholars' Lab at the University of Virginia hosted GIS Day festivities November 19th highlighted by map expert and digital innovator David Rumsey speaking on “Giving Maps a Second Life with Digital Technologies”, a map gallery display, a user showcase with 13 area groups demonstrating their GIS accomplishments, a guided tour of the historic Schwartz map collection, and a luncheon talk by Dr. John Scrivani of the Virginia Department of Forestry.

Fun? You bet! It was a whirlwind day of geospatialness including the Charlottesville CBS station's wall-to-wall GIS Day coverage.

Yours in spatial awareness,
