GIS Day

GIS Day

GIS Day is an international celebration of Geographic Information Sciences (GIS) technology each year in the month 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.  Activities on the Troy campus range from presentations to competitions. Geography Awareness Week and GIS Day 2021 proved to be the best yet at Troy. 

In honor of Geography Awareness Week,  a Geocaching Competition was held on Tuesday November 16th with participants winning gift cards by located all 10 caches hidden on campus using geographic locations. 

For GIS Day 2021, November 17th, the Geospatial Informatics Department met with students on the Quad to discuss GIS and were featured on Troy Trojan Vision that evening.
