Events: 2013 GIS Forum and GIS Day
GIS Day: November 20, 2013
GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
For 2013, International GIS Day falls on November 20, in the middle of Geography Awareness Week. The week will begin with a display in the lobby of the Government Center showing the many uses of GIS in Loudoun County. During the week, the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services will team with the Office of Mapping and Geographic Information to map trails and amenities in Bles and Lansdowne Parks using smart phones. The goals of this pilot are to train staff to do mobile data collection and to develop web maps of the parks.
