GIS Day 2016 was a great opportunity for our students to showcase their work, and reflect on all of the new skills they have acquired since entering the program this fall. Te-Yao “Dale” Lee and Xu Li received awards for their submissions to the Student Poster and Map competition, and Fikriyah Winata gave one of the four Practical GIS Presentations. Other GIS-PSM students also actively participated in GIS Day events, presenting maps and posters, and interacting with the event’s many business, academic, and governmental GIS participants.
