GIS is an important set of tools for understanding and visualizing data, and it’s a broadly applicable set of skills that is important for learning, research, and many contemporary professions.
What Lives Where & Why? Understanding Biodiversity through Geospatial Exploration sounds awesome; too bad it's not published in an open access journal!
The Maine GIS User Group Meeting (MEGUG) Fall Conference and GIS Educator’s Workshops are planned for Friday October 25 in Bangor, ME. It's super affordable for all and free (thanks to the Maine Geographic Alliance and Esri) for teachers and students.
