Hello, Geographers!

GIS. day. everyday, .GIS day everyday, sayy whaaat?? 





  1. GIS Day
  2. Movie Night at Ecole 
  3. Mildy Interesting Map of the Week
  4. Cool Thing of the Week




GIS is tomorrow!! The day will be filled with inspiring/informative talks from G.I.Scientists as well as open sessions where you may ask your own personal questions, which if you're thinking of entering the field is an amazing opportunity!

If this hasn't got you pumped, we also have a mapping workshop, wine and cheese, posters, and geography games like Speed GIS, trivia, and more!

Check out the schedule of a clearer schedule for the day detailing the events, speakers, and times these events will be taking place!



2. Movie Night at Ecole

Are you leaving ENVR 20X every day feeling SUPER BUMMED OUT?! Same. Well sometimes, we all need to hear a positive perspective on the future and WHY it was a good idea to major in Sustainability, Environment, Geography, etc.

"Demain" is a French film focused more so on solutions than on the problems that need fixing! Check out the behind-the-scences of this proactive movie:

The SASSS is partnering with MUGS, MESS, Sustainability Projects Fund and Ecole to screen an English version of the film "Tomorrow" in the Ecole Living Room. For those of you who do not know what the awesome, sustainable Ecole is, check out their info:

Most importantly, grab some friends, some hot chocolate and a blanket, and come cozy up to your fellow concerned-for-the-future-friends for an incredible movie that should be a required film for our generation!



3. Mildly Interesting Map of the Week

Montreal rocks. Literally. Check out this gorgeous geological map for the island we call home, where geology and geography combine! Unfortunately they're still essentially the same subject to many of our family members however.... Give the image a click to see the map in HD!



4. Cool Thing of the Week

GIS is obviously the coolest thing this week/year, though since our Keynote speaker Daniel De Lisle is coming from Space Canada tomorrow (not to be confused with a Canada in Space), I thought i'd share recent pictures of Saturn's Hexagonal poles! Read here for some explanation on these wacky poles, and keep up with your GIS and Remote Sensing skills to maybe help out in the future of space exploration and the geography of space!



So there you have it,

A short (though sweet?) Listserv for the week. I hope to see you all at GIS day whether it be to gain bragging rights in speed-GIS, or in marvelling at real live GIS specialists (in the flesh). 
Have a great week folks :)
