GIS Day 2017

GIS Day banner 2017

The Libraries hosted an Open House on GIS Day, Wednesday, November 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Arkansas Union room 504. GIS Day is an annual, internationally-recognized event promoting Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology and the importance of geography in society.

The GIS Day event was designed for a student audience, and for those with or without a GIS background. Visitors browsed a book display of new GIS-related books available to borrow from the library, viewed posters of studies and research projects using GIS, enjoyed a celebratory cake, and toured the Air National Guard RAZORBack PAD Trailer.
