GIS Day!

Today was GIS Day, run by the Geography Peoples’ Society (Western’s version of GeogSoc), featuring lightening talks, research poster displays, interactive stations and cake! Maybe I will commit to the advanced GIS module back in Southampton next semester…

My favourite lightening talk by Felipe Gonzalez-Macqueen, his research focuses on the use of drones for mapping Geoglyphs in Peru (he also mentioned the wonder of stonehenge, so Bradley and I felt patriotic at that moment). 

We learned how GIS is utilised in the real world such as by the emergency services, as well as technical research applications.
