3C GIS Day and GIS Week at Kelvin Smith Library

Join the Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship of the Kelvin Smith Library Nov. 15–19 to celebrate GIS Day(s), a slate of programming about geographic information systems (GIS). GIS is being used across many disciplines and industries to drive innovative research and gather, analyze and visualize geographic data to answer research questions and solve real-world problems.

This year’s GIS Day(s) will feature virtual presentations from researchers around Ohio throughout the week. Review the schedule and register to attend these sessions on the GIS Day website.

On Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., Kelvin Smith Library will host an in-person event to celebrate GIS Day by demoing some GIS projects in virtual reality and hosting a presentation by a local industry professional who flies drones to create 2D and 3D maps. A live drone demo will take place next door at Freiberger Field, and snacks will be available for registered attendees.

Register to attend the in-person event via CampusGroups.

The program for GIS Day(s) 2021 will be a collaboration between Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati.
