November 17, 2010 is officially Geographic Information Systems day. There will be celebrations spanning 59 countries and 45 states in the United States. However, the one question you may have now is: What exactly does GIS celebrate?
Simple things such as finding the easiest route to a previously unknown destination and learning about plants native to a particular area would not be possible without GIS and all of the different programming codes working in tangent. So show your appreciation by perusing the GIS sponsored events in your particular geographic region, and show off your geography skills. You could learn more about geography, and incorporate what you learn by coding more GIS related items. Happy GIS day.
