Geography Awareness Week is about celebrating, learning, exploring and advocating. It is time to rethink GIS from its humble roots as a tool to understand our world, a world where geography is integrated into all relevant processes, where maps and spatial analysis aren’t novel but expected. Explore a future where GIS isn’t a niche, and it isn’t special. It is ubiquitous.

Continue the conversation on Li360, a social community dedicated to the use of spatial technologies. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss this series and more with our presenters.
