GIS Day 2017

Add this event into your calendar using the iCAL format
  • Wed, 11/15/2017 - 9:00am - 4:00pm

The University of Windsor’s Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research along with the City of Windsor will be partnering up to celebrate GIS Day 2017! We would like to invite your top students in disciplines such as geography, ecology, world issues, or other geoscientific courses to attend the event.

GIS Day provides users of geographic information systems (GIS) an opportunity to celebrate and promote GIS and other geospatial technologies (e.g., global positioning systems, unmanned aerial vehicles) within their communities. In addition, it provides students and community members a glimpse into the real-world applications of GIS (e.g., relating to the environment, criminology, municipal services, etc.) and the potential career opportunities it presents. This event will also be used to highlight the University’s new GIS certificate program currently being developed.

We’ll be joining hundreds of universities, non-profit organizations, public and private schools, and government organizations around the world in celebrating and bringing awareness to the potential and impact of GIS technologies by organizing talks, games, and poster sessions. In addition, high school students will be able to participate exclusively in interactive demonstrations using GIS software and other geospatial technologies in our on-campus laboratories and other locations across the University of Windsor campus.
