International GIS Day at Fredericton High School

On 15 November 2000, Drs. Sue Nichols and David Coleman participated in the International GIS Day seminar organized by CARIS at Fredericton High School. With over 60 students in attendance from Grades 10 to 12, Dr. Coleman led off with a brief introduction to the wide range of applications of geodesy and geomatics in today's society. Dr. Nichols then followed with a discussion of how geomatics addresses particular problems in environmental monitoring and land management. Good discussions followed with the students and teachers present. This is the second year that UNB GGE faculty and staff have worked with CARIS on GIS Day presentations.
