GIS day 2008: Geography matters!

Today, 19th of November 2008 is the International GIS day. It started as a part of the National Geographic Society’s, Geography Action! Geography Action! however nowadays it’s spread globally. GIS day is a yearlong program encompassing key educational achievements such as GIS Day and Geography Awareness Week designed to engage students, educators, and communities in taking action to protect the Earth and its people.

For many it is also a good occasion to celebrate the profession they are proud of. Our best wishes to GIS professionals, students and occasional users!
