Sudbury Catholic Board Students Join City Staff in Celebrating GIS

November 19, 2004 - Sudbury Catholic District School Board students joined forces with the
National Geographic Society and the City of Greater Sudbury in helping
to promote geographic literacy and Geographic Information Systems (GIS)during GIS Day held at Tom Davies Square recently. During this unique half-day presentation students were able to interact with City of Greater Sudbury staff to discover the impact that geography has on our everyday lives. GIS demonstrations included “real time” computer
generated mapping, open exhibits, games, and a question and answer
session which focused on the integration of computer software, data and solutions that are used by hundreds of thousands of people in
government, education, and business. GIS Day is part of the National
Geographic Society’s exciting new initiative, Geography Action! 2004
which is a year long initiative encompassing key educational
achievements to help promote the understanding of geography in schools
around the world.
