Kids in schools learning about GIS

Recently the NZ Geospatial Office, who convene a Geospatial Capability Committee, held a High Country hi-tech Virtual Field Trip for schools introducing GIS concepts to schools and capturing the kids interest in attending with a competition about drones.  It sounds like a successful trip.

You might like to check out the videos on the LEARNZ Vimeo website - including one with Jana Kaeppeler (GIS Officer at Mackenzie DC) entitled “Using GIS and sharing data” that shows students some of the common data layers that local government GIS/mapping applications typically use.  At the end it suggests that students check out their local council to see what online maps and GIS data they have.

You never know, a student near you might start asking about GIS data or careers in GIS!

By all means pass on the link to the site to people you know who have young people grappling about careers.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact Gill Lawrence, LG rep on the Geospatial Capability Committee. (Contact email: gill dot lawrence at waikatoregion dot govt dot nz )

    Good day everyone,I can’t hide this great testimony that took place in my life I will love everyone to know it and be a partaker of this, that is why I want to share it to the whole world by placing this advert on classifieds, I am Mr Morgan Smith by name, I live in Chicago, United State, I want to thank ROBBINSON MOORE for his kindness upon my family life, I never knew that there is still a sincere and trustworthy lender like this on the internet and on earth. Just some days I was in search for a loan of $ 150,000.00, As I was in search of funds to start up a business. I was scammed about $15,000.00 dollars and I decided not to involve my self in such business again. But a Friend of mine introduced me to a loan firm due to my appearance and doings and also my complains to her. And I told her that I am not interested in any loan deal anymore but she told me that there is still a sincere lender who she will recommend me to, And she gave me the details of this man who is called MOORE ROBBINSON. And I really put a trial and I am most greatful and lucky today, I was given a loan amount of $95,000,00 Dollars by this great firm MOORE LOAN COMPANY. If you are in need of a genuine, Sincere, durable and a truth worthy loan lender or financial assistance and also you know you can be reliable and trusted, capable of paying back at the due / duration time of the funds I will advice you to send your contact to them via email @[] OR Text +1(414) 454-9493 .
