GIS DAY 2011

The Connecticut Geospatial Information Systems Council (CGISC) hosted an event to celebrate GIS Day at Legistrative Office Building in Hartford, CT.  The day was a success as Chairperson Tyler KleyKamp kicked off the event with a speech and read  Governor Dannel P. Malloy's 2011 GIS Day Proclamation.
Presentations and posters focused on GIS usage within the State's municipalities, educational system, and various state agencies and also the how Effective GIS was used during the recent two dissasters that faced the state this year.  GIS professionals, vendors, and students attended from across the State and took advantage of the opportunity to learn from each other and to observe various presentations. The GIS Day activities concluded, with the monthly GIS Council meeting where sixth grader Michael Borecki form Middlesex Middle School in Darien was recognised by the council and presented a legislative citation from Terri Woods, State Representative form Darien/Norwalk for his achievement in winning the 2011 Connecticut Geography Bee sponsored by the Connecticut Geographic Alliance (CGA).
