Happy Earth Day!! Its time to think about contributing to the bettering of our wonderful planet whether it be by recycling, planting a tree, changing lightbulbs, picking up some trash, or just enjoying nature.

Today, consider incorporating GIS into your celebration. Here are some resources to look into:

Visit Earth 911, which is a real-time recycling and local environmental information service

Visit Rising Sea Levels, which are animations showing the effects of ice melting on a large scale

Visit NASA Earth Day Photos


Simply learn about the History of Earth Day
