GIS Day will be celebrated around the world on Wednesday, November 15.  This is a day to celebrate geographic information systems (GIS) based technology.  GIS-based technology allows us to analyze information to help make informed decisions to create a positive impact through our work.  GIS software is utilized by professionals in a remarkable variety of fields, from accounting to zoology, and it is used by organizations of every type such as academia, corporations, not-for-profits, and local to federal governments.  GIS technology also includes Esri’s web-based application ArcGIS StoryMaps. This app is used to create media enriched narratives.

This year the University Libraries will be hosting an open house on GIS Day from 2 to 4 PM on November 15 in the GIS Research and Map Collection located in Room 224 on the second floor of Bracken Library.  You are encouraged to come meet the new GIS Specialist, Lorey Stinton.  While you are there, see what a StoryMap is and discover how you can utilize this app to share your research or projects.

This event is free and open to the public.
