Minnesota 4-H Shares National GIS Award (08/17/2005)
The national 4-H GIS design team and National 4-H headquarters have received a "Special Achievement in GIS Award." The award was for outstanding use of geographic information system (GIS) technology.

The team includes four Minnesota members:

Jaci Nagle, Koochiching County information systems data manager. Nagle is also a 4-H volunteer/collaborator and worked with 4-H regional Extension educator Jan Derdowski in developing and producing 4-H GIS Camps offered in Koochiching County in 2004 and 2005.

--Zach Johnson and Justin Mayer, 4-H members in Koochiching County.

--Trudy Dunham, University of Minnesota Extension Service, Center for 4-H

Youth Development. Dunham is coordinator of the national team and has been a member since its inception in 2003.

The design team and national 4-H headquarters integrate GIS technology into youth programs that launch community mapping programs in 175 communities in 44 states.

GIS is a computer-based mapping tool that takes database information about a location, including streets, buildings, water features, and terrain, and turns it into visual layers. The ability to see and analyze geographic features on a map gives users a better understanding of a particular location, enabling planners, analysts, and others to make informed decisions about their communities, the environment and businesses.

ESRI, maker of GIS software, presented the award at the Twenty-fifth Annual ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, California, in late July.
