The Alexander lab participated again as a sponsor with the GIS Day Savannah event hosted by Savannah Area Geographic Information System (SAGIS) on the Savannah State University campus.  This year marked the 10th year for the event which introduced 450 8th grade students along with area business owners, staff, GIS users, and citizens from the local community to demonstrations of real-world applications that are making a difference in our society. GIS Day is celebrated internationally as part of National Geographic’s International Geography Week. The National Geographic Society has sponsored Geography Awareness Week since 1987 to promote geographic literacy in schools, communities, and organizations, with a focus on the education of children.
