Expert Feature – Change the World: The Esri GIS Education Conference(by @josephkerski)
In his typical, fun and educational approach, Joseph touches on some interesting Geo facts and history. He then leads us into details of the importance of GIS in education (his true passion) and offers up interesting real world stories.
A cool mapping project from Joseph Kerski who’s always full of fun educational ideas! No doubt he mapped Loveland, Colorado in this one!

Many of us in the field of GIS believe that spatial analysis needs to be spread throughout a wide variety of disciplines.
Spring in North America brings not only new flowers, but a new crop of tornadoes. As we are all aware, the 2011 tornado season has already been horrific, and our hearts go out to all those affected.
Imagine what education would be like if spatial thinking and analysis with geotechnologies was a set of skills and a framework that was valued by others outside of the GIS education community.
Like many of you, I give presentations and workshops throughout each year on the topic of GIS as a career.
Thanks to Joseph for this, his first GISuser "Expert" contribution! People have always been fascinated with investigating their home—the Earth. To understand our planet, ancient scholars in Rome, Greece, and China founded the study of geography over 2,500 years ago.
