Washington College - GIS Computer Mapping Technology Summer Camp

This summer Washington College is hosting a Computer Mapping Technology Summer Camp from June 20-26, 2010.

Computer mapping technology, also known as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), is an up and coming technology field with many future career opportunities for the youth of America. Many of today's young people are not aware of the possible future opportunities available to them. The Washington College summer camp experience is designed to introduce this new field and teach students how to utilize this technology on important community issues. These include environmental studies, governmental management of municipal infrastructures such as sewer and water, emergency management from natural disaster management to 9-1-1 response, and important community planning issues, such as future growth and the social impacts of this growth.
