GIS Week 2020

Welcome to GIS Week 2020

November 15-21 is Geography Awareness Week and November 18th is international GIS Day. We're combining them together to offer something Geographic Information Systems (GIS) related each day. Whether you are curious about GIS & mapping and want to learn more, or you actively use geospatial data or technologies in your classes or research, we hope you'll find something of interest.

Geospatial technologies are becoming ubiquitous across disciplines and industries. From tracking disease and mapping election results to location intelligence, using drones to survey habitat, and building software for apps like Uber or Zillow. Geospatial data and tools are all around us. It is data science, journalism, policy or simply making a map using a Geographic Information System. Geospatial data and tools drive most every aspect of our lives and the way we interact with each other and the world around us.
