David Davis from the USDA-FSA-Aerial Photography Field Office will discuss the history of aerial photography from carrier pigeons to today's modern unmanned aircraft and satellites.  In the first part of the hour David will amaze you with some facts about how we get the maps we see on Google Earth and our mobile devices.

In the second part of the hour Buck Ehler, a GIS Analyst/Cartographer from the Utah Geological Survey will present a fascinating look at the jobs some of your students will have in the burgeoning field of GIS.

This presentation may even make you want to change careers.
