Wednesday, November 14th, 2012, is GIS Day across the globe, and the Geographic Information Systems movement is in full force throughout NOAA and in the National Weather Service. Whether you know it or not, you are likely using National Weather Service GIS products on a daily basis. Any time you check radar, you are using GIS. Anytime you click on a map to get a forecast...GIS. Watches, warnings, advisories...you guessed it...GIS.
Links to the latest issue of the NWS Geospatial Newsletter as well as a brochure on NWS GIS products and services is provided above.
