GIS Day is an international celebration showcasing real-world applications of geographic information systems (GIS), providing a forum to explore the benefits of GIS and build local GIS communities. The celebration will include a variety of talks, displays, and informational tables about how this cross-disciplinary technology is being used to visualize and analyze diverse types of spatial data. There will be something for everyone, whether you are new to GIS or already utilizing geospatial technology. Check out this short video to see what MSUM’s GIS Day is all about!

All events will be held in the CMU Ballroom. Come browse the exhibits and have a GIS Day cupcake from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. A pizza lunch starts at 11. Fifteen-minute Lightning Talks by GIS Professionals and GIS Student Interns, kicked off with a Welcome by President Anne Blackhurst, will run from 11-1. We have a great list of speakers who will talk about everything from social justice, to mapping natural resources or crime, to serving our communities.
