In honor of Geography Awareness Week (Nov. 12-18) and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Day (Nov. 14), LLCC Math and Sciences hosted activities for students in A. Lincoln Commons using a giant floor map of Illinois. The map, approximately 14 feet by 21 feet, was made available for use by the Illinois Geographic Alliance. It was designed by the National Geographic Society.
Geography Awareness Week is an annual celebration of geography and the important role it plays in our lives. GIS Day provides an opportunity for people to learn about geography and the uses of GIS.
