GIS Day 2017 at Ohio State is an annual event for students, staff, faculty, and visitors to learn about the power of geospatial analysis and visualization. This year’s program features a “Lightning Lecture Lunch” with 10-minute talks on a wide variety of topics related to Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Speakers include faculty, staff, students, and representatives of government and industry groups. Refreshments will be provided.
After the talks, exhibitors will be available for a GIS information fair from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. GIS professionals from across campus and beyond will be available to speak with students about GIS resources and careers and the application of geographic technology in real-world scenarios. GIS Day is made possible by a partnership of CURA, the University Libraries, and the Enterprise GIS Initiative at Ohio State.
