TWGHs Joint Secondary Schools
Outstanding GIS Application Competition 2018/19
To cultivate more smart people in a smart city, a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) competition was conducted for students studying in junior secondary forms at the 18 secondary schools of Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs). An award presentation ceremony and exhibition was successfully held on 4 May 2019.
Esri China (HK) joined hands with Hong Kong Education City to provide software support and training workshops for the TWGHs students, who can acquire GIS knowledge for their study and research in the context of smart cities. We are pleased to find that all submitted projects can make wise use of the GIS technology to solve daily life issues in the smart Hong Kong.
