Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to join the Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship at the Kelvin Smith Library to celebrate GIS Day Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

This annual event promotes geographic information systems (GIS) and the research it supports. GIS is 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 will feature a StoryMaps workshop to introduce users to an easy workflow for creating webpages with maps, images, videos, data and more. StoryMaps allows users to quickly build custom narratives and interactive data visualizations to tell research stories their way.

There also will be some interactive virtual and augmented reality stations for attendees to explore.

Snacks and beverages will be provided.

Register to attend.
