International Geographic Information Systems Day

Kelvin Smith Library is celebrating International Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship. The library’s digital scholarship staff will demonstrate and introduce attendees to new open source tools to amplify research.

This is the fourth year Kelvin Smith Library is participating in the global event that aims to highlight real-world applications of GIS—the scientific frameworks for gathering, analyzing and visualizing geographic data. Virtual and mixed-reality experiences and demonstrations will provide unique opportunities for the Case Western Reserve University community to connect with university resources and learn how to use GIS.

Light snacks will be served. Register to attend via CampusGroups.
