GIS Day 2010

Delaware GIS DayHave fun viewing photos of the event on Flicker here!

GIS Day started in 1987, as part of the National Geographic’s Geography Week, as a way to expose society to the tools and opportunities of GIS. The Delaware Geographic Data Committee is a cooperative effort among all levels of government, the academic sector, and the private sector, to build a Delaware GIS Community and improve the coordination of the use of GIS tools and spatial data in Delaware, so for several years the State of Delaware has participated in celebrating GIS Day.

For the third year, the Delaware GIS Day Event Committee offered to selected 5th grade students a field trip to the Dover Air Command Mobility Museum. The event was designed to support Delaware curriculum requirements for fifth-grade students who are learning about geography, cartography and the world around us.
