Huge maps, posters and geographic displays greeted people Wednesday who were passing through the East Baton Rouge City Hall lobby.

The maps were part of the city-parish’s celebration of International Geographic Information Systems Day and Geography Awareness Week. The GIS department put up the displays and was on hand to answer questions about their role at the city-parish.

Here are photos of the displays:
