This is the annual salute to geospatial technology and its power to transform and better our lives.
The event is sponsored by ESRI Software Company, which supports many programs for education and outreach throughout communities worldwide.
About Geography Awareness Week
Too many young Americans are unable to make effective decisions, understand geo-spatial issues, or even recognize their impacts as global citizens. National Geographic created Geography Awareness Week to raise awareness to this dangerous deficiency in American education and excite people about geography as both a discipline and as a part of everyday life.
On Friday, Nov. 21st @ 4-8 PM at the Yuma Palms Shopping Mall, the Cibola Association of Geographers will present geography trivia games to the youth and demonstrate online GIS services for community members that can be utilized for information and feedback to city planners.
