14th Annual GIS Day @ KU

Wednesday, November 18, 2015
Kansas Union 4th Floor, Alderson Auditorium

GIS Day @ KU is part of a nationwide event to promote awareness of geographic information systems (GIS), and how we use this evolving tool to analyze our world. We continue our tradition of bringing together a community of GIS users from academia, business and government. GIS Day will include talks, a student poster competition, and an information fair with vendors from academia and local business that will run throughout the day. GIS Day @ KU is FREE and open to the public. Participants can come for all or any part of the symposium.
