Map Your World on GIS Day 2016

REDLANDS, Calif.- Smart mapping company Esri today announced the 18th annual GIS Day will take place on November 16, 2016. The day is a celebration of geographic information systems (GIS) technology and unites the geospatial community in a global movement of collaboration, sharing and education.

The celebration brings together GIS users from companies, private industries, universities, government agencies, schools, and non-profits to build a stronger understanding about the world we live in, through the demonstration of real-world applications. Every day, GIS technology is making a positive difference across our planet, benefiting the lives of millions of people. The technology allows users to solve problems and make smarter decisions about land use, energy, water, natural hazards, biodiversity, climate, and other key issues of the 21st Century with geospatial analysis and insights.

While GIS Day is held on one day in November each year, Esri encourages people to find out more about GIS throughout the year via Esri Press books, our MOOCs program, and other training courses through your local university or community college, and via gisday.com.

Share what you are doing on GIS Day with an open house, a visit to a school or university, or a webinar.

Join the movement and register your GIS Day event today!
