Selkirk College in Castlegar is celebrating GIS (geographic information systems) Day November 20.

The campus will host a day of activities to introduce regional high school students to GIS (geographic information systems) and Selkirk’s GIS program.

Students will be able to take part in hands-on workshops that offer real-world GIS application experiences, talk to GIS researchers, instructors and current students, win prizes and enjoy lunch.

Columbia Power is a sponsor of GIS Day and Llewellyn Matthews, Columbia Power’s Director of Environment (far left) met up with Ian Parfitt (top row, second from left), Selkirk College’s Geospatial Research Centre Coordinator, and the rest of the Selkirk College GIS team, to learn more about the event.
