GIS Day!

Map with GIS text

GIS Day is an annual event for students, staff, faculty and the broader community to learn more about Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and to celebrate the power of geospatial analysis and visualization in answering research questions and solving real-world problems. This year, GIS Day is happening on Wednesday, Nov. 18.

In the past, we’ve hosted in-person GIS Day events, but the first important change for this year is that we’re going virtual!

A virtual GIS Day provides us with a great opportunity to broaden participation in the program. This year our GIS Day 2020 program will be a collaboration between Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati. Get ready for 3C GIS Day!

We look forward to an exciting program that will include:

Lightning Talks

  • Learn about the application of geospatial technologies in a wide variety of disciplines from faculty, staff, students and GIS professionals across Ohio’s 3C Corridor (Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati).

StoryMaps Showcase

  • We’re inviting any students, staff and faculty affiliated with Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati to create and submit ArcGIS StoryMaps to showcase their work on GIS Day and beyond.

Professional Networking

  • We will provide a venue for GIS professionals, researchers and students from across Ohio to connect with one another and discuss experiences, opportunities and current topics of interest in the world of geospatial.
