A nice “feel good” GIS Day story today from our friends at Blue Raster as the crew shares details of how they hosted a slew of young GIS enthusiasts at the office in order to celebrate, educate, and invigorate… well done! If you’ve ever wondered just how you or your company can take part in GIS Day, geography awareness week, or other similar events this is a great example to follow.
Blue Raster welcomed twenty-three students from Washington-Lee High School who are participating in the James Madison University Geospatial Semester, a college-level GIS class. The day’s agenda included presentations of various Blue Raster GIS projects, a geography challenge and a Q&A session for students seeking an understanding of working at a GIS firm.
