The GANS Geographic Education Project is used to promote the importance of learning geography. This project would be of interest to many DNS members who may want to consider sharing it in future communications.
The custom designed posters are professionally printed and sent to the corresponding high school that the featured professional on the poster graduated from. GANS believes that this initiative helps promote both high school geography and the industry, ultimately resulting in more students pursuing geospatial studies and careers after they leave high school. It also provides more knowledge to the teachers, parents, and general public about what our industry does, and how GANS provide services and knowledge that they depend upon every day.
