Bringing a Geographic Perspective to Libraries and K-12. Create. Share. Learn (Washington State Library)

Geography matters in every organization and every discipline. For anyone trying to evaluate information, the most intuitive way to view it is on a map. In this webinar we will discuss how three agencies in Washington State are using GIS technology to bring a new perspective to learning and understanding data from the world around us. Included will be Enabling Local Government Transparency. Jason will discuss the benefits of Kittitas County’s Open Data Hub, the technology and infrastructure behind it and the benefits to having data available for public access. Joanne will demonstrate the Geospatial Open Data Site at the state, geo.wa.gov, how to view the data and a few examples of using geography for state business. And Bruce will discuss how OSPI uses GIS to manage student transportation data and encourage use of GIS in the classrooms through an annual middle school/ high school competition.
