GIS Day is a global event celebrating the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). It provides an international forum for users of GIS technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
At the University of Michigan you can join the celebration by attending UM-Dearborn’s GIS Day Event (8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 14.) Activities will provide students, faculty, staff, and the community with the opportunity to explore, share, and learn about the application of geographic information systems (GIS) to problems that affect the environment and society. Presentations and exhibits will showcase the use of GIS in community development, public safety, health, environmental science, and others.
The event is free, though preregistration is strongly encouraged. Also, if you are attending from Ann Arbor, consider riding the university’s Detroit Connector bus and saving yourself the hassle of driving and finding parking.
