Bringing a Geographic Perspective to Libraries and K-12. June 4, 2019, 9 a.m. PACIFIC
Geography matters in every organization and every discipline. For anyone trying to evaluate information, the most intuitive way to view it is on a map. In this webinar we will discuss how three agencies in Washington State are using GIS technology to bring a new perspective to learning and understanding data from the world around us. Included will be Enabling Local Government Transparency. Jason will discuss the benefits of Kittitas County’s Open Data Hub, the technology and infrastructure behind it and the benefits to having data available for public access. Presented by Joanne Markert, Office of the Chief Information Officer; Bruce Schneider, Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction; and Jason Eklund, Kittitas County.
