GIS Day 2014
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.
Loudoun County’s celebration of GIS Day 2014 resulted in a crowd-sourced map of favorite places in Loudoun. The Office of Mapping and Geographic Information invited people to record their favorite places in the county on a map for GIS Day, November 19, 2014. Many responded using their cell phones to locate a point on the map and attach a photograph of their favorite places. The mapped points included schools, the W&OD Trail, businesses, and museums. The crowd-sourced map can be viewed online by clicking on the image at right or on the link below:
