The UW-Madison Department of Geography will host the second annual GIS Day in Memorial Union on November 17th from 9am-3pm. The purpose of this event is to promote awareness of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in today’s society for research, planning, management, education, and decision-making in a wide-array of application areas. Those interested in GIS will also be exposed to career opportunities in the GIS field and learn about educational and training opportunities on campus.

This year marks the 6th anniversary of GIS Day, an annual global education initiative for the advancement of geography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) science.
