6th Annual GIS Day at UFV

Wed, Nov 20, 12:45 – 1:45 pm in A413

The Geography Department is continuing its tradition of hosting an annual GIS Day lunch hour event as part of a worldwide movement to showcase and promote GIS technology and its use in our society. Have a slice of pizza and a soft drink while you learn about how geographic information system (GIS) technology has rapidly spread through any discipline in which location is important.

Agriculture, biology, geology, computing, environmental science, forestry, planning, and transportation are just a few examples of disciplines in which GIS technology has played an increasingly important role in mapping, managing, visualizing and understanding information.

Scott Shupe from the Department of Geography will kick off GIS Day with a short overview on trends in GIS followed by a special presentation from UFV alumnus Alison Thorpe, who will discuss her extensive use of GIS during an internship in Tanzania.
