Science for Everyone Lecture Series
February 25, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Speaker: Eric Damkot
Topic: What is GIS ?
What exactly is GIS and why do we need to know about this? Eric Damkot will discuss how how Washington County maintains its Core data sets used to help decision makers. We’ll take a look at some case studies and how this information system is used in redistricting, farmland preservation and public health; such as tracking the mass
vaccinations that would be needed if a pandemic flu outbreak occurred. You’ll also get a look at how you can access some of this data on your own.
