Hello Everyone,

Next week is Geography Action Week and Wednesday, November 15  is "Find 
Yourself in Vermont" Day -
VCGI is sponsoring a Map Making Competition for school kids in Vermont. 
Make a Map using either GIS software or online mapping applications and 
submit it in paper or digital format. Winners' maps will be displayed at 
the Legislature in Decemeber! Kids can make their maps using the VT GIS 
Basemap application at our web site and we have posted a video 
demonstrating how to use the Basemap!

Please visit our web site for more information as well a a list of GIS 
open houses around the state and links to online mapping applications 
focused on Africa (this year's Geography Action Week theme):
