A Successful GIS Day 2017

Another successful GIS Day at the college has passed. This year our theme was “Data for Good” and we had some excellent student posters come out of it. This year’s posters focused more on the data then on the display; certainly more interesting for me then they’ve been in the past. We also had a small poster session from our bachelor’s students—their projects look quite interesting this year.
