GIS Day in Lincoln County...

Several Schools within Lincoln County participated in GIS Day on November 16, 2011, including RTR High School, RTR Middle School, and Ivanhoe Public School.

Together with the County GIS Specialist, Emma Volz, the class went though a PowerPoint presentation on Geography & GIS.  If you would like a copy of the presentation, you can download it here.

Students also participated in mapping activities, including looking at printed aerial imagery of their Town and County and locating their homes on the Interactive Mapping website.
