GIS Day is Just around the Corner

This November 19, the geomatics world will celebrate the 15th annual GIS Day. GIS Day is part of Geography Awareness Week, a geographic literary initiative. It’s a way for participants across the world to celebrate the way that geospatial technology makes our world a better place.

GIS Day is a global educational event that provides a platform for vendors and users to open their doors to schools, businesses, and the general public to showcase real-world applications of GIS.
