Known as “GIS Alley,” this mix of private, public and educational institutions has resulted in a pool of talent, capital and collaboration seen in very few areas of the country.At first glance, geographic information systems, or GIS, could be described as high-tech annotated maps, but with a closer look, it’s much more. And after all, who doesn’t love a great map? See the article here – see also www.gisalley. com and you can usually catch yours stuly at local Geo meet-ups as they happen!
