Wednesday, March 1, 2017 will be the next GIS Appreciation Day. Thanks for participating everyone!

Wednesday, March 2, 2016 will be our first GIS Appreciation Day!

So let’s all celebrate GIS Appreciation Day on March 2, 2016 by posting at least one GIS fact, one great map, one photo of your colleagues or whatever you come up with. I’m looking forward to this!
