More about the GIS Day 2001 Conference

On November 14th, 2001 the New Hampshire Space Grant consortium and Complex Systems Research Center hosted their third annual International GIS Day events at the institute for the Study of Earth Oceans and Space on the University of New Hampshire campus. Hosted guests included upwards of two hundred high school student and teacher guests from seven New Hampshire high schools during the morning sessions and about 150 adults during the afternoon sessions. Attending high schools included Coe-Brown Academy (Northwood, NH), The Community School (South Tamworth, NH), Dover High School, (Dover, NH), Lebanon High School (Lebanon, NH), Merrimack High School, (Merrimack, NH), Oyster River High School (Durham, NH) and the Profile School (Bethlehem, NH).

All attending high school guests were hosted to an extensive cartographic exhibition, college fair and vendor hall featuring over seventy five displays from approximately one hundred professionals from as far away as Colorado and Georgia. Hosted students were also treated to a hands on tour of Complex Systems Research Center's GIS and Remote Sensing Laboratory and to a series of talks about the Geo-Spatial Sciences and the educational and career opportunities that they offer. Afternoon guests were hosted to additional professional vendor presentations given by representatives from companies and organizations like ESRI, ERDAS, GDT, Clark Labs, the USGS, the US Census bureau and many more.

In an effort to further enhance geographic knowledge all students guests were provided with packets which included additional information about Geo-Spatial Science related technologies, career and educational opportunities in the Geo-Sciences, interesting earth facts, information about famous geographers and a geo-quiz. All students were also provided with a new Merriam Webster Notebook atlas and a series of souvenirs including pens, buttons, and stickers. In total, throughout the day, the 30+ person GIS Day 2001 staff were able to give away over 300 atlases, 300 globes, 30 maps and posters and over 600 souvenirs to the GIS Day 2001 guests.
