CISAT to host GIS Day on Nov. 15

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Claremont Graduate University (CGU's) Center for Information Systems and Technology will host GIS Day events on Friday, Nov. 15 in celebration of the university's partnership with Esri, the world’s largest developer of GIS software.

Events will begin at 3 p.m. in the Academic Computing Building, Room 214. GIS Day is free and open to the public.

David DiBiase, Esri's director of education, will give a presentation. Events will also include demonstrations of CGU student-faculty projects utilizing GIS.

Geographic information systems, or GIS, is a field that merges data collection and mapping in order to analyze and assess real-world problems. GIS has evolved from a specialized geography tool to encompass a suite of transdisciplinary analytical approaches that are being used in a wide variety of fields, including health, public policy, transportation, business, education, humanitarian relief, and environmental affairs.

GIS Day is celebrated annually with independent events around the world. It provides a forum for users of GIS technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.

CGU's Academic Computing Building is at 130 E. 9th St. in Claremont.
