GIS: A look back at GIS Day 2010

A look back at GIS Day, 2010
The Connecticut Geospatial Information Systems Council (CGISC) hosted an event to celebrate GIS Day at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, CT.  The day was a success as Chairperson Diane Wallace kicked off the event with a speech and then read Governor Rell's 2010 GIS Day Proclamation.
Presentations and posters focused on GIS usage within the State's municipalities, educational system, and various state agencies.  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 as well as the keynote speaker, Don Cooke.
GIS Day activities concluded with the monthly GIS Council meeting where Darius Mostaghimi was recognized for his achievement of winning the 2010 Geography Bee sponsored by the Connecticut Geographic Alliance (CGA)
