GIS Day

The Department of Geography in partnership with the Map and Data Centre, invites you to this annual celebration. GIS Day is held worldwide during Geography Awareness Week each year in mid-November. GIS Day serves to increase awareness of Geographic Information Systems and the importance they play in our lives.

At Western, the event will showcase how GIS technology is applied in academic research, business applications, government management and much more. Students will have a chance to share their experiences with GIS technology through poster presentations and local industry and government representatives will be invtied to speak on GIS applications in their organizations. 

Come and discover the world of Geographic Information Science (GIS), and the impact that geospatial thinking has in our daily lives.
