GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society. This year's theme is Public Policy.
GIS links locations (where) to information (what), allowing us to question, map, analyze and interpret data and better understand spatial relationships, trends and patterns. GIS applications are increasingly essential to science, industry and government and are quickly becoming important in everyday life for people and communities.
This FREE EVENT will include a hands-on workshop, presentations, GIS and Public Policy Panel, a poster session, and a keynote address showcasing GIS at Temple University and in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
A growing number of CPH faculty and students have expressed using GIS in their research, and we encourage all who have an interest to attend.
WHEN: Nov. 13 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
WHERE: Charles Library
