Redlands GIS Day 2013

1:00 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.
University of Redlands


Whether you realize it or not, geographic information system (GIS) technology is a big part of your life.

From the GPS on the dashboard of your car to the sophisticated remote-sensing data and analysis systems that predict the paths of dangerous storms, GIS informs our experience of the world.

Every year in November, GIS Day is celebrated around the world. This year, the University of Redlands, the City of Redlands, and Esri are celebrating our GIS-infused community on Wednesday, November 20, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. on the university campus.

This event is free and open to the public.

Redlands GIS Day will begin with an open house featuring posters, technology demonstrations, and hands-on activities. The open house will be followed by the MS GIS Colloquium, featuring student project presentations and a guest lecture sponsored by the School of Business.

Join us for GIS Day and experience firsthand how the power of GIS is improving life, enhancing learning, and helping to solve real-world problems in Redlands and beyond.
