The theme for this year’s GIS Day at Temple is “Making a difference in communities with GIS and spatial analysis.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is the technology behind anything that combines data with maps. If you've ever used Google Maps or Yelp, you're using GIS. It lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships and patterns across space and has wide applications across many fields. Join us to hear from academics and professionals who are using GIS in the fields of business, health, education, planning, journalism and more.
Attendees are encouraged to drop in for individual sessions.
We will be raffling off a free Kindle Fire and other gifts. Attendees will receive one free raffle ticket for every event attended.
