GIS Day 2017

Date / Time

November 13, 2017

9:45 am - 3:00 pm

Join UIC’s Urban Data Visualization Lab (UDVL) and the University Library to celebrate GIS Day 2017 at the Richard J. Daley Library (1-470). Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.

GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and visualization techniques allow us to organize, analyze, and communicate data. GIS Day is an opportunity to celebrate innovative projects that use these techniques, network with other users, and participate in hands-on applications of the technologies. Whether you are new to these technologies or an expert, GIS Day will give you the chance to see examples of data visualization work, stay informed on the latest developments, and think more about how these techniques can be applied to your classwork, to your research, and in your career.
