Take some time to look at this incredible story map:
Come to our next Washington, DC Meet Up on Thursday, May 16, and learn how GIS can enrich your story. There are countless examples of incredible uses of GIS technology. Everything from charting at-risk communities, presidential elections, hurricanes, and various kinds of public information. Map making in this kind of capacity facilitates improved decision making, and increased ability to understand complex data and relationships.
Join us for our first MapStoryDC MeetUp where we’ll launch MapStory: Local, a new initiative for 2013 to get people mapping the evolution of the communities they call home. We’ll start off with our first MapStory Local example, which depicts the growth of Ames, Iowa from its founding until now. An open mic period will follow, so bring your stories! We’ll have food, good people, and of course, free MapStory swaginee MapStory swag.
