GIS Day 2013

November 20, 2013 was GIS Day.  In our annual tradition here in the Scholars’ Lab, we hosted a round of lighting talks with a variety of speakers including several groups from the Shenandoah Valley Governor’s School.



As always, the had a great mix of disciplines and uses of GIS.  Thanks again to all the participants.  A slide stack of the presentations is available here.  Oh, I almost forgot the other part of our GIS Day tradition, GIS Day cake!
