Join us as we celebrate GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Day on Wednesday, November 18th.
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.
The Library’s Geospatial Services Center (GSC) on the main level will be open and will host refreshments and other activities. This year's GIS Day features a poster walk throughout the library featuring various applications of geospatial technology, interactive pollution maps, and presentations on the uses of GIS and other software in the Natural Sciences Resource Center (NSRC) on level two.
