This series is presented by Cowley County’s MIS/GIS department, Lucas Goff, Alex Rudowski and Keith Dailey as well as the K-State Research and Extension of Cowley County.
The series concludes in a celebration on November 19 to honor “GIS (geographic information systems) Day.” GIS Day is a worldwide celebration and annual salute to geospatial technology and its power to transform and better our lives. Beginning in 1999 as a grassroots initiative to publicize the importance of geography and GIS uses, GIS Day provides users of GIS technology the opportunity to share and demonstrate applications that are making a difference in the world.
