GIS Day is a global event that provides an international forum for users of GIS technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society. USGIF will be participating in George Mason University’s Department of Geography and Geoinformation Science GIS Day at the Center for the Arts on the Fairfax, Va., campus.
This year’s theme at GIS Day at GMU is “GIS and Health.” GIS and geography have long been considered essential to studying and understanding health-related topics, from tracking and visualizing disease diffusion to identifying the drivers of health outcomes and optimally locating health care services. The event consists of a career/internship fair, speakers, presentations, and the department’s annual student poster/map competition.
