People interested in working on a geographic information system (GIS) project to benefit their community are invited to view the online seminar, Partnering for Community Action, offered by ESRI on GIS Day, November 20, 2002. The seminar, beginning at 9:00 a.m., will discuss strategies for planning projects that combine schools’ and various organizations’ efforts to incorporate GIS technology into the community.
Laura Feaster and Kim Zanelli English, who work with the ESRI educational products team, will conduct the seminar. Both Feaster and English write Web-based training materials for the ESRI Virtual Campus and ESRI Press. They are currently collaborating on the book, Community Geography: GIS in Action.
