In my efforts to push GIS and Geospatial Technology, I jump on ever opportunity to tell other about my passion for GIS. In correlation with the 2009 Geography Awareness Week, I participated in my local GIS Day event and also presented at a high school. At the GIS Day event I worked a booth at [...]
With the GeoMentor Program being introduced at the 2009 ESRI International User Confernence many people are seeing this as a new idea.
