He’s delved deeply into Charlotte’s evolving geography, from a book about the rise of segregation here — SORTING OUT THE NEW SOUTH CITY (UNC Press) — to a monthly Charlotte Observer column “Food From Home” that explores the surprising mixture of international eateries along Central Avenue, South Boulevard, and other corridors.

GIS is helping our students to become better thinkers and more creative in solving both community and environmental problems. It is a technology tool that they can learn from and grow their knowledge academically for future professions.
The Morning Session of the GIS Day Expo will highlight local education groups and their GIS Projects that they have worked on. Link to presentations.

National Geographic's Giant Traveling Maps tour the country's schools, bringing hands and feet-on geography education to tens of thousands of students each year. Designed to combat geographic illiteracy by igniting students' interest in geography, the maps and accompanying activities incorporate physical movement and games to teach students place name geography, physical geography, and cultural geography as well as map reading skills. National Geographic is loaning its map of North America to Mecklenburg County GIS. The map will tour Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, after-school programs and will be on display during GIS Day. For more information, please contact 980-314-4634.

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. A group will venture out on the streets of Charlotte to look for some map caches.
