GIS Day Comes to UTSA

 

Exploring Geographic Information Science with Area Children

 

On November 15 the UTSA Office of Facilities, in collaboration with the Alamo Area GIS Users Group, will hold GIS DAY in the HUC Ballrooms on UTSA's Main Campus. GIS Day brings Geographic Information Science to school-aged children. 

Through demonstrations and lectures, GIS exhibitors and speakers will allow participants to experience firsthand GIS technology and its applications. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience and learn about successful careers in GIS and real-world applications of GIS in their community.

The school track focuses on classes that are already using GIS or about to use GIS in the social sciences, sciences, and technology.¬†Alamo Area GIS Day hosts a variety of organizations that will showcase their GIS capabilities as well as share their insights and expertise of GIS technology. The focus this year is the group’s educational initiative, with presentations dedicated to K-12 education throughout the day. A professional networking presentation allows exhibitors to offer participants and sponsors a chance to meet others in the GIS community, catch up on the latest technologies, and introduce their services to a new market. Come see how GIS is used, get project ideas, and meet new colleagues at GIS Day.

Date: Wednesday, November 15
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 12 noon
Location: UTSA Main Campus, HUC Ballrooms
