North Carolina GIS Live Conference

Previewing NC GIS LIVE
Open Places: Wild Spaces

Join educators and students, government and the general public in celebrating GIS Day! GISLiveNC is one of our state’s many contributions to the GIS Day global event. GIS Day seeks to educate millions of children and adults about how geography makes a difference in our lives and to demonstrate GIS technology at schools and organizations around the world.

“Open Places: Wild Spaces ” is the theme and everyone is encouraged to participate by “tuning in” to the streaming video webcast. Why not project the webcast onto a screen or wall in your school or office so everyone can join in the excitement?

Exemplary Projects 
Exemplary projects will be presented via the Web on Tuesday, November 15th from 9:00AM. to 1:00PM. EST.

GIS LIVE Team Challenge
See GIS in action and meet teachers and students across our state as they discover how we can cross boundaries with GIS. Can you, as a GIS professional, work with a teacher in your area and help them use GIS and NC OneMap in a skillful problem solving exercise?

Virtual Exhibits
Meet the presenters and learn more about their special projects.  Here you will find a wealth of online resources including links to GIS online mapping opportunities.

CEU Renewal Credits
