NOVA’s GIS day will be on Saturday, Nov 22 from 9am – noon at the Reston Center.

NOVA GST department and the ASPRS student chapters from NOVA and GMU are planning a mapathon focusing on food security!  Participants will learn about Open Street Map (OSM), create an account and learn how to make edits.  We will also have a presentation about field papers to get participants excited about contributing to OSM.  Participants will work in NOVA Reston computer labs individually or as a pair on specific tasks adding local information to OSM.  No previous mapping experience is necessary!  The event is open to the public.

GMU’s GIS day will be on Wednesday November 19th from 10 am – 4pm.  Click the link for a full schedule:
