World GIS Day celebrated at BIS Hanoi

GIS

, or Geographical Information Systems, is computer software that allows geographical data, such as population, pollution, climate, poverty and wealth to be represented on maps.


This week, Year 9 students have been completing on-line tasks to find out 'How Risky' the place that they live is if an Ash Cloud Apocalypse was to happen as a result of a Mega Volcano erupting.
