GIS Day is an international celebration of Geographic Information Sciences (GIS) technology each year on the third Wednesday of November. The third week in November is also designated as Geography Awareness Week. Here at Troy University, we take this time to help others learn about geography and the real-world applications of GIS that are making a difference in our society. Geography Awareness Week and GIS Day 2022 were the best yet at Troy.
On Wednesday, we had a booth outside on the main quad with our GIS professors and some of our current students, as well as representatives from the Troy Utilities Department. We also held a webinar with guest speaker Brian Baldwin, ESRI GIS Education Solution Engineer, about What is Coming/Changing in GIS. The webinar was recorded for those unable to attend.
