GIS Day at Oregon State University

The OSU program will join more than 2,000 other schools and organizations that will host GIS Day events in 90 countries around the world. A special activity will be held for more than 400 local middle school students and their teachers, including presentations, videos, a global positioning satellite “hike” across campus, and a “kid’s keynote” address by Analisa Gunnell, chief cartographer at Ecotrust, on saving the salmon. OSU's GIS Day activities are sponsored by the Department of Geosciences, the College of Forestry (in conjunction with the USDA Forest Service and the USGS), and the OSU Valley Library, and will include a special program for over 400 local middle school students and their teachers who will visit the OSU campus.
