Geographic Information Science (GIS) Day

GIS Day logo

The School of Geography & Earth Sciences invite you to this annual celebration. GIS Day is held worldwide during Geography Awareness Week each year in mid-November. Come and discover the world of Geographic Information Science (GIS) and the impact that geospatial thinking has in our daily lives.

The first GIS Day was held in 1999, with Ralph Nader the inspiration for the event. He considered GIS Day a good initiative for people to learn about geography and the uses of GIS. He wanted GIS Day to be a grassroots effort and open to everyone to participate.
