GIS Day is set for Wednesday Nov. 14 at the Main Library and will take place from 10-2.
There will be a variety of activities, including lightning talks, drone demonstrations, an augmented reality sandbox, and a Mapathon. We'll also have tables featuring campus and local organizations, as well as snacks (and cake!)
Registration will take place in the Lobby; the lightning talks will be in the Instruction lab; the Mapathon, Map Contest voting, and informational booths will be located on the 1st Floor behind the Coffee & Bagels space. It will be louder than usual in that space, so we'll be placing signs signalling that fact a couple of days in advance.
GIS Day is an international educational event for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society (Source: www.gisday.com). GIS refers to software that captures, analyzes, displays and shares spatial or geographical data. Through maps, spatial modeling, and many other applications, GIS provides critical information for public health, government planning, neighborhood real estate, national defense, business, transportation and many more fields.
