What is the event about?
GIS Day is about providing an engaging, discourse-generating forum for people to discuss the technology, applications, and power of Geographic Information systems (GIS). GIS represents a relatively new set of technologies that are rapidly changing our world by creating a heightened geographic/spatial consciousness. Natural and social scientists, decision-makers, and the general public are increasingly engaging and expanding the potential of GIS to improve the way human beings interact with planet Earth. It’s a very exciting time, with some even positing that global society is collectively undergoing a geospatial revolution. Here at FIU, we’re celebrating GIS with a range of activities, including guest lectures, multiple workshop sessions, GIS/map games, an all-day poster-viewing session, and a student poster competition. We’ve essentially planned a one-day, multi-site (MMC & BBC) mini-conference!
