Telling our stories helps us communicate and build consensus. While the Internet has opened up new and creative ways to build and share those stories, low-tech/high touch can work wonders too! Further, the story of GIS is also told when GIS analysis and digital mapping shows up film and television. Sometimes it is "fantastical" - really, who wouldn't want those CSI apps? - but sometimes they show real, cutting edge technology. This session features both high tech and high touch ways to communicate and tell our stories.
