GIS Day at UW-Madison: Discover your future in GIS

GIS day 2013

Don’t miss this year’s GIS Day event! It will be held on Wednesday, November 20th on the main floor of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, 330 N. Orchard Street on campus from 10am to 2pm.

The event is free and open to the public with no registration required.

This year we’re putting a new spin on the event by focusing on careers in new and emerging geospatial technologies. GIS is helping our students to become better thinkers and more creative in solving both community and environmental problems. GIS is a technology tool you can learn from and grow your knowledge academically for future professions.

The format will include several keynote speakers, including Greg Tracy from Propeller Health and Paul Braun from Continental Mapping Consultants.

Between speakers, explore the various exhibits that will be stationed in the area, and network with other geospatial professionals and newcomers. Learn how this powerful technology plays a role in making our world a better place.

We are encouraging exhibitors (including university departments, government agencies, private businesses, and non-profit organizations) to join us in this educational effort. If you are interested in exhibiting or participating in some way please contact Brenda Hemstead at 608/263-4371.
