  • 1.  Used a map lately?

    Colleagues,  You probably used GIS (Global Information System) to get around town, the country or even the world.  So think about celebrating GIS Day.  See what former Military Librarian, Paulette Haiser at LoC's Chief of the Geography and Map Division is planning.

    GIS Day is a global event during which GIS (Geographic Information Systems) users work to expand the understanding of how GIS technology and geography make a difference in our lives. GIS, a computer-based tool used to map and analyze features and events, combines the power of a database with the visualization capabilities offered by maps. Hundreds of thousands of people in the world use GIS to solve problems in areas such as environmental protection, pollution, health care, land use, asset deployment and routing, natural resources, conservation, business efficiency, education, and social inequities.

    Thanks Paulette!
