GIS Day Details

What is GIS Day?

GIS Day is celebrated nationally on the third Wednesday of November as part of National Geography Awareness Week. GIS Day provides an opportunity for GIS professionals, students, and residents from across L.A. County (and beyond) share what they are doing with GIS and to make connections with other professionals, departments, agencies and organizations about how they benefit from this technology. GIS Day also provides and opportunity to share our collective work with the public and to others interested in learning about and benefitting from GIS in their own lives and work.

Who is our audience?

If you are curious about GIS we encourage you to attend! Everyone from decision-makers, the public, students, GIS professionals, map lovers and technology enthusiasts are welcome to join us for the day. Many visitors come from local government agencies, the public, students embarking on their study of GIS.

Our audience includes people learning about GIS for the 1st time to seasoned GIS practitioners looking to build their networks and knowledge. Our goal is to illustrate that the use and value of GIS and how it can benefit everyone. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
