GIS DAY 2018


Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are a cross-disciplinary technology. While GIScience is concerned with the data representation, analysis, modeling and visualization of geographic phenomena and processes, usually involving GIS, many other disciplines use GIS in their research. GIS are widely used by professionals around the world in spatial decision-making. The range of GIS applications include archaeology, agriculture, cartography, civil engineering, meteorology and climatology, coastal studies, emergency response, forestry, geology, hazards, land use and land cover, natural disasters, oceanography, water resources, and so on. The numerous GIS and Remote Sensing books are covering these disciplinary intersections that happen when GIS are used in action to solve or manage real issues in society.

The History…

The first GIS Day took place in 1999. Esri president and co-founder Jack Dangermond considered GIS Day a good initiative for people to learn about geography and the uses of GIS.
