Geology and GIS Day 2012

On 11/14 the Washington State Geological Survey participated in GIS Day 2012 festivities held in the state capitol building. Geologic maps were showcased in the rotunda and questions were answered at an information booth staffed by survey employees. In the afternoon, four survey geologists (Tim Walsh, Trevor Contreras, Eric Schuster, and Meredith Payne) gave talks highlighting the use of GIS in their individual work and emphasizing the societal value of geologic mapping. We thank the many individuals who contributed to making this event a success!

Eric Schuster explains how he converts legacy paper geologic maps into digital GIS products to a GIS Day 2012 audience.
