GIS Day

GIS Day

GIS Day is an international celebration of Geographic Information Sciences (GIS) technology each year in the month of November.  Here at Troy University we take this day to help others learn about geography and the real-world application of GIS that are making a difference in our society.  Activities on the Troy campus range from student presentations on the Quad to GIS Workshops.

For GIS Day 2020, November 18th, the Geospatial Informatics Department hosted a GIS Webinar with three professional guest speakers.

  • Mr. Josh Chris (3-GIS), "A Day of GIS Engineer"​
  • Dr. Joseph Kerski (ESRI), "5 Forces, 5 Trends, and 5 Skills Critical to GIS and Remote Sensing in the 2020s"
  • Mr. Brett Lucas (Caliper), "Future Trends in GIS"
