Teaching the world with GIS
Take part in the international celebration of geographic information systems (GIS) technology. Help others learn about geography and the uses of GIS. Demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society. In 1999, Esri president and co-founder Jack Dangermond began the first formal GIS Day, crediting Ralph Nader as the inspiration behind this day. Jack's hope was to create a fun and educational event to learn and participate in the technological momentum of GIS.
