23 Jan 2017: Getting to grips with GIS

By using Google Earth they have been exploring the possibilities of measuring, layering, adding labels and all manner of other useful skills. From measuring Kingsmead’s astroturf cricket crease to the nearest centimetre (from space!) to exploring shipwrecks off the Hoylake coast and the Kyoto Nishiki food market from ground level – the sky’s the limit!
