The University of Georgia will celebrate the second annual GIS Day 10 am - 2 pm Nov. 15.
The event will feature lightning talks on real-world GIS applications, UGA Map and Government Information Library tours, internship information, and free snacks. This year, the event will also feature a Mapathon and a Map Contest with prizes for the winners. The Mapathon will map Africa with PEPFAR in support of World AIDS Day.
