“Most people use GIS technologies like map apps and GPS every day, but might not know all the different ways they help society function,” shared FDLTCC GIS Program Coordinator, Carl Sack, Ph.D., “GIS lets us visualize what’s important to us, investigate and solve the tough problems our planet faces, and experience the joy of learning more about our place in the world.”

The GIS Day event at FDLTCC will include free lunch, presentations from guest GIS experts and GIS students, hands-on activities and more. To learn more about GIS Day at FDLTCC visit To discover other GIS Day events happening around the world, visit

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
