GIS Day 2015 invites map enthusiasts to discover mountain mapping
Map aficionados are invited to gather in Aspen on International GIS Day Nov. 18 to celebrate geospatial technology and learn how easy it is to use digital mapping technology for a host of ‘everyday’ purposes.
The GIS Day Open House will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at the Aspen Fire House (420 E. Hopkins Ave). Pitkin County GIS Department will showcase intuitive and interactive maps focusing on the new Pitkin Maps & More website, as well as the Open Space and Trails – Pitkin Outside application. Participants will get hands-on instruction on how to use the map application to create a mailing list, create a property report, download data, print a custom map, find nearby parks and trails, and access a historic maps gallery now available for download, among other things. All data and map services on Pitkin Maps and More are offered at no cost.
The open house will also include demonstrations, question and answer sessions, refreshments and map trivia with prizes.
