GSC Thanks GIS Day Participants

Posted November 23, 2015

Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in GIS Day. The seminar presenters, poster authors, faculty, students, and Library Administration all helped make the day a success.

GIS Day 2015, which took place in Dimond Library last Wednesday (Nov. 18), helped the UNH community celebrate the world of geospatial technologies.

As GIS applications continue to involve more disciplines across campus, attendance and interest continue to grow. We are happy to host an event with such a diverse and expanding audience.

We look forward to seeing you next year—Wednesday, November 16—for GIS Day 2016.

With gratitude,

The UNH Library Geospatial Services Center (GSC) Team

GIS Day is a chance to explore the world of geospatial technology. Geospatial technologies are increasingly used in research and teaching within the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and other disciplines, as well as in many consumer products.
