November 14 is GIS Day

Episode 926 (38)

Wednesday November 14 is Global Information Systems (GIS) Day. Leo says that we are reliant more and more on Global information thanks to Global Positioning System (GPS) devices. Geography has never been more important and Wednesday is to celebrate it. Leo also says that in the days of Google dominance and smartphones, GIS is even more important. Google knows where you are if you have Google Latitude enabled, and you can access all your activity because of that.
